Always painting color (can’t live without it!), I’ve turned to mixed media in order to express the truths with which, God has pierced my heart. Some argue the benefit of words over pictures while others prefer pictures over words. I have too much to say to settle for one. Similarly, mixed media frees me from the confines of just one medium. I use the combination that best suits my expression—luscious brushstrokes, calligraphy, text, drawing, printmaking and beautiful papers.

He Led Them Safely Out

The Bible often refers to God's people as sheep. In this case, the psalmist recalls God leading the Israelites out of Egypt. Since middle-eastern sheep have shaggy coats, I tore many tiny pieces of rice paper for their wool. The sunset sky in Israel glows in a beautiful apricot color. I've depicted the land with papers that I painted and marbled. This "stone" marbling pattern can be traced to ancient Turkey.
