From the Heart through the Eyes of an Artist

The Master's Touch 

Christian Art Ministry for Trauma Survivors

I am a fairly shy person
but learning to be
more open every day.




Six wonderful children




Married 28 years



Simple in my life style






I am a homemaker and an artist, choosing to remain self-employed so that I could stay home with our children.

Up in the cool mountains in Colorado
 I am occupied with many things

If you stopped by for a visit, you might find me sitting at my art desk working with my oil paints, painting with all my heart; headphones on, listening to inspiring music. I might have tears flowing down my face or maybe laughter, just being content on what Christ is doing in my life and I want to paint it.

I will be so intent on the piece of art before me that I won't want to stop and fix supper or do the laundry.  You might even find me steadily working, preparing for an arts and craft show working against a deadline.

The artwork area is upstairs and I am very contented in this place as it has two large windows, one facing north and the other facing east.  I love doing my Bible studies on my art table because of the view.  Our home has a panoramic view of the hillsides and the Pikes Peak mountain. A forest with Corn husk dollslots of pine and aspen trees begins right at the back corner of our house.

I also work downstairs in my craft room, creating corn husk dolls to sell at arts and craft shows, (my family thinks I create a mess).  It's a little time of fun and fantasy which takes me back in time.  I love Country-Victorian styles and I guess this keeps me dreaming.

I enjoy taking drives with my husband; finding beautiful flowers, unique twigs and wild dried things to add to my art and doll creations.  I love photography and writing, but most of all I love my family and what a reward to add the grandchildren now.

God has now brought me to a place where I can share the knowledge of His grace and purpose to the women around me in ways I never could have thought possible for me.  I always felt I was too shy.

On March 30, 1989, my life changed drastically as my daughter and Iwere in a traumatic car accident and I came very near to loosing my life.

This is when I can say
"My Story"
   really begins . . .


Then, He gave me these verses:


"Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage;  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
                         Joshua 1:9

" . . . Be strong and of a good courage, for thou must go . . . "
                    Deuteronomy 31:7

"And the Lord,  . . . he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee:  fear not, neither be dismayed."
                    Deuteronomy 31:8

"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?"   (I could think of a lot of things to fear, no problem there.)  " . . . the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
                         Psalms 27:1


All of my friends and family know how shy I am and how there's no way I will or would change.  Even now, they want me to tell them what happened to me . . ."This is amazing, she's changed!"  I can give only God the credit.


"Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord." 
                           Jeremiah 1:8 

(Boy, did this verse hit me
smack in the forehead.)

" . . . therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee:  be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them."
                            Jeremiah 1:17 



So, I started to think . . . and study, and I knew that if I got more involved with the women's ministry it couldn't be me who did it.  It had to be God.

I just needed to make myself available.
That's when I saw God working.

He was always working, but now I could see it more clearly.
