A Few Words From Our Art Director
Every one of our amazing artists have taught me far more than I could ever teach them. Art is a means of expressing one’s thoughts, emotions, vision and purpose. When the artist and I decide a painting is finished, it’s not so much what it looks like, or what others may see, it’s about the awesome journey the artist and I just completed. From a stark, white canvas we added one layer, one thought evoking shade, tone and pattern over or beside another, again and again. We enjoyed and celebrated each brush stroke, every mix of pigment and every laugh and giggle along the colorful adventure. What you see is the end result of an amazing transformation, where sheer will and determination overcame physical or mental challenges. The studio is a magical place where “I can” replaces “You can’t,” which is most often imposed on our artists by an outside world that hasn’t taken the time to explore, encourage and invite expression from these wonderful human beings.
Yes, we believe in “I can.” We promote, “You will.” And lovingly prod with, “You must. You must first prove to yourself, then the outside world, that God does have a special purpose for you in this world.”
We invite you to explore our growing art program and to shop in our online store, which will soon contain a selection of useful and decorative items, suitable for gifts and personal use. We know our products will add joy to your life, because now that you understand the process, our merchandise acquires more value and meaning. Not only will you be supporting a very rewarding and beneficial program, you’ll own a cool piece of art, born in the heart of an artist you’d consider a treasure to know, as is my pleasure.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement!
