Created To Create

I grew up on a small farm in rural Maine; a quiet and sensitive introvert, creating was second nature; I drew, painted and sculpted what i loved. It was my "voice" of that which could not express in words. Yet, by junior high, and throughout high school, i focused rather on my studies in biology influenced by my parents who were in the medical field. Yet two years into my college studies, a strong creative passion surfaced that I had suppressed and that required a voice again. At a career crossroads, I made a choice to go with my heart, changed majors, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art (Dec, 1985). I have been self-taught ever since I graduated from college. I love studying & discovering new ways of working with oil, acrylics & other mediums. Much of my artwork on Etsy is an overflow of these studies as i continue to hone a unique artistic fingerprint & voice. I am so grateful to God for the ability, the gift to create beautiful things that bless others !

“Let Your work appear to Your servants, & Your glory to their children...let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, & establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:16-17
♥ My Personal Testimony:
After graduating from university, in April 1986, I decided to travel through Europe for three months, for I had struggled for several years with depression.
And I also had a deep desire to know Truth and especially why I was created.
I knew that if I could find God, that I would find unconditional love and perfect peace.
So with passport, backpack, and a train-pass, I set out on a journey...
And on July 21, 1986, I had an encounter with God that changed my life
in a radical & wonderful way. I have never been the same...

Although I had tried to connect with Him through eastern spiritual and New Age practices,
yet, I always came up empty, lonely and more depressed...
And it was at this time in Edinburgh, Scotland, on July 21, 1986,
that the TRUTH and the Love, that I was desperate for, was introduced to me...

I had a revelation of God, and His Son, Jesus Christ.
I discovered that He had had made the Way over that great chasm that separated me from God and His love.

This great divide was called SIN.

God's Son had paid the price to bridge the GAP between me and God, the Father.
He paid that price by dying upon the Cross.

In that moment, and thereafter, He began to set me free; from lies, guilt
and the heavy burden that I carried from things I had done in my life.
The One Who had created me began to heal my broken heart and life,
as I yielded my life to Him,

How freeing it is now to have a relationship with My Creator God and Father;
and to discover who I am as a child of God through believing upon Him;
to have a true eternal purpose in all that I do ! 

God's love for mankind is shown through the gift of His only Son, Jesus—
who was brutally beaten and crucified upon the Cross.
He is the Lamb of God who became sin for us.
He was holy, blameless and He gave His life in obedience to His Father's will.
He endured the violence of the Cross in order to pay for our sin...
He secured victory over death, hell and the grave through His glorious Resurrection.

The love of God, the Father, reaches out to us through His Son
to pluck us out of the state of sin as well as from the powers of darkness.
Through this act of divine love and mercy,
God restores the broken fellowship that He originally intended when He created mankind.

"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God,
to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13

Through Christ we have been invited into the family of God, adopted as a son or daughter...
God desires a personal relationship with His people and that we would seek to know Him.

Draw near to Him—who gave His life for you—and He will draw near to you.

He desires that you would know Him and His will for your life
in order to fulfill all of His purpose in you !

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord,
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved and enter into this relationship with a living God!
