My name is Joanna Lothers, and I live in upstate South Carolina. I am the daughter of missionaries, but I have spent most of my life in the United States. From a young age, I have loved art and explored a variety of media including watercolor, graphite pencil, acrylic paint, pen and ink, collage, colored pencil, and more. I began working with watercolor only recently, but it quickly became my favorite medium. I have won a couple awards for my watercolor portraits and continue to enjoy the creative process of painting.
Influencing and informing my art is my faith. Growing up in a Christian home, I knew the truth of the Gospel from a young age. Gradually, as I began to understand the deep love of God and the extent of my own sin, those truths became more real and dear to me. At age 9, I chose to become a part of the Body of Christ.
My goal in creating art is to reflect God’s beauty and creativity, in a small way, and to use my work as a platform for sharing the gospel. I am currently studying painting and drawing as a university student and look forward to how God will continue to allow me to use art for his glory.
