WELCOME TO MY ART CORNER!
I am a Christian artist and speaker, author and book illustrator, graphic designer, mural and sign painter.
My goal here is to find ways to serve the Lord through art assignments or speaking engagements.
I have illustrated six books and would love to do more. I've done a few hand-painted wooden signs and five murals, one with eight walls. I've also designed business cards, flyers, posters and other graphic art that isn't included here.
Education and Experience:
I feel my creative talent is a gift from God, and I want to honor Him in all that I do. God is the only true "Creator". He started from scratch--the rest of us just work with His mix.

I've found connecting to the Creator a wonderful source for creativity. As I go to him for ideas and help, it gives an exhilarating sense of working together with Him on a project.
