The Artist

Our family has an artist among us. Today I thought I might show a sample of her work. This girl has been drawing since I can't remember when. As a student in private school, she got into a lot of trouble for drawing when she should have been working. Once we homeschooled, this was not a problem because she had ample time to devote to her passion for art.
This particular piece depicts her deepest passions. Art, horses, and special needs children. She has been a volunteer for an equine assisted therapy group for two years now - and she deeply loves every one of her clients --- and her horses. Through this volunteer work, I have seen her grow-mature-and develop character never seen before. God has surely placed these deep loves in her and must have a great purpose for them.
For now, she studies, sketches, paints and volunteers. You can find her artwork for sale at She ranges from nature to fantasy to people. Please visit her sight and enjoy --- you might even want to buy one!
