"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me. When you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13
Hello and welcome to The Greater Purpose Gallery! Thank you for visiting my site! My hope for you viewing my art is that you see more than drawings, but that you see the love of a real, living God through it all. Art is something that I have always loved since I was a child. As a little girl, everyday I came home from school I would sit and draw for hours. But, as I got older and time for college came up, I had lost sight of what I truly loved. Society around us puts us all into a box and a standard system to follow. The normal, and often perceived correct thing to do is, graduate high school, go to college and get a wonderful degree, then get a job and become successful. And that is exactly what I was on track to do, but God had a completely different and unconventional plan for me. Nearing the completion of my Biology degree, God called me back to my first love, art. With much prayer and the answers so clear, I chose to stop going to school to pursue my art full time. It was a huge step of faith for me because there are no guarantees! But that is the most beautiful part about it, learning to trust only in God to take me to new places with the talent He has blessed me with. I am so thankful for the talent God chose to give to me, and this is my way of giving back to Him. I have never been taught or had any lessons in art, and that is why it is so special and humbling for me. I have learned so much through my art and it has drawn me closer to God than I could have ever imagined. I want you all to know that we can use our gifts and talents God gave us to worship Him! In all we do, give Him the glory and praise! I encourage all of you to follow the dreams and passions that God has placed in you heart, He put them there for a purpose! I am excited to have you all join me on this beautiful journey! Thank you once again for visiting The Greater Purpose Gallery and enjoy! Always remember God loves YOU!!
