My Art

I've always been a bold creative being. I've studied art formally since the age of 12. When the Lord called me into church ministry, I thought I'd given up my art - sacrificing it on the altar for the sake of ministering to others. With a brief pause in creative art due to moving to South Africa, God has resurrected this piece of my life and allowed me to create again. Here are just a few experimental and formal works from my studio!

My Students

A new journey in my ministry in South Africa is encourging others to be creative, just like our Creator! I volunteer at an NGO as a representative of the local church; my time there is full of beauty, development, assistance, and encouragement. I work with children and adults. 


Above are some of their beautiful creations.
