Meet the Artist

“When Sarah first asked me to paint character portraits for the RescYOUed Bible Study, I was eager to get started. Although I struggled with moments of doubt throughout the process, in the end, I discovered that God really did equip me for this task.

Many people did not have easy lives in the Bible, so I did not want to make them look too perfect. Of course, I have no way of knowing what each person looked like, so these portraits are my own artistic interpretations. I love God and only wish to honor His Word as I work to bring the Bible to life with my paintings.

I have learned so much through this project and I hope you all enjoy my interpretations of the Biblical characters as you work your way through the RescYOUed Bible study.
