Hello and Welcome!
I am a combination of self-taught and product of an art school. The sketches started out as something fun to do. I begin with cat drawings and things that I find interesting. Then my love for the bible started to seep into my drawings. I like to draw bible verses on rocks, in the bible, sketch journals, paintings, and surface design such as fabric and wallpaper. When I was a toddler, I even finger painted all over my parent's pristine white walls with my chocolate cover fingers. It was such an abstract masterpiece my parents still talk about it today. LOL
Why draw bible scriptures? I think it's a privilege to have a mighty creator as a muse. He is the source of my inspiration and world view. Without God, everything is meaningless. It is God's love that motivates me to illustrate his words to share with others. I believe the world would be a more joyful place if people know how much Jesus loves them. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him" -John 3:16-17
What's my fascination with cats? I do draw a lot of cats even though I am allergic to them. However, I take pleasure and enjoy them from afar. They are entertaining little creatures, odd, and rather silly. I like to capture some of that essence by illustrating a series of whimsical cats to spread some laughter. Who knows... eventually I might start illustrating bible cats. :)
Thank you for dropping by and God bless!
