I started pastel painting when I was pregnant with my son. I still remember taking my paintings and setting up a stand to sale my art out on Venice beach in California. It was very windy that day. I call my artwork a “Portrait of Poetry” because I take lines of my original poetry and write them on a picture that I paint. I love to paint natural landscapes because they remind me of the abundance God created in this world and flowers because they signify God’s beauty. There’s a beautiful scripture in Matthew 5:26 that talks about the lilies of the field that drawing flowers also reminds me of. I sometimes draw abstract pieces of artwork inspired by nature. Take a look at my art from previous years.
