A Creative Life

My Art Studio is featured in the latest issue of
Simply Shabbilicious
By Kerryanne English


An Artist's Sanctuary


"I grew up near water's edge, hiking through misty meadows with a sketchbook in hand."


My Quiet Artist's Retreat


"My artwork is quiet...My heart desires to cultivate peace in all that I paint."


"All of my paintings and artwork have meaning.  I try to include a glimpse of that meaning by using quotes, poetry, or psalms in the description of each piece."


"We want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it." ~C.S Lewis


"My art is a reflection of who I am.  It flows from the stream of my soul.  Painting truly is like silent poetry to me.  I believe it is a gift.  A gift that I was born with and is meant to be given to others..."

A few of the other Artists...

"I have a real passion for taking something which is seemingly unloved and discarded and turning it into the centerpiece of a room...I believe that beauty is often found in the unlikeliest of places."  ~Anne Lorys Photography


"I love to use old salvage in all my spaces, even the creative spaces."
~Kris Vavra Junk Chic Cottage


"People need us to follow our dreams, they need us to find our passions because we touch lives that go way beyond our own.  It's like a ripple of water when a stone is thrown in.  I always say that there is so much ugly in the world that we need to see beauty."
~Annetta Bosakova 


"As an artist, I firmly believe that being creative is not just making something, music, art, poetry, craft...It's how you live your life."
 ~Kerryanne English
