“My Shield of Faith” piece is mixed media art that was one of the seven crosses I created in response to the big pause, because of the pandemic. With my business shut down I became an artist in residence overnight while I am waiting out the re-opening on my Massage Studio business.
I always start my process with an idea that bubbles up from being inspired by a verse a song and or an idea that births from my heart what I see or hear and move that idea to the canvas as a pray over it and I release the process in the moving of the Holy Spirit. My creative process for me is a worship experience where I learn about truths in my life and how My connection to the creator of my being thru this act of worship. I hold these moments dear to my spirit and the way I feel and move connected and I grow in my relationship with The Lord. Praise and worship music plays in my studio and is always on!
My Art is a metaphor for life, it’s about starting something and pushing through those uncomfortable moments. Knowing that I’m enough and that I can make mistakes and in those mistakes they can teach me things and I can push through and create something beautiful.
The Cross represents for me is my redeemer, my healer, my shield, the cross is the Divine exchange, promise of forgiveness, the cross is my strength, heaven and earth, my peace And the cross represents my faith, just a few things (I have a big list)

I recently finished up a series of 7 crosses that reflect all that I know to be true in my life. The series started with the idea of the cross being our shield. A piece of the armor of God - I chose the cross as the solid foundation that I stand on to represent the battle because without the work on the cross we didn’t stand a chance to use the The Armor of God. By Jesus death on the cross we are gifted The Holy Spirit to those that believe!! I am strong in the Lord and in His mighty power I put on the armor of God and I take my stand against the devils schemes ..
I declare VICTORY !
This piece, 1 of the 7 crosses is entitled “My Shield of Faith” is standing in the promise’s of the cross and taking up the shield of faith to dismantle the lies and live, as God desires for us. “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one”. Eph-6:16
