About the artist

Exodus 35:31-32: And he has filled with the spirit of God, with skill, intelligence, knowledge, with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and bronze. On December 9, 2012, I became extremely ill. I went from being a Pediatric LPN, working with medically fragile children, to barely being unable to care for myself. Since that day I have been in and out of the hospital and rarely able to leave my home. I have been diagnosed with Pancreatic Divisum and Gastroparesis, and until i can eat normally again I have got to change my life to stay close to home. It wasn’t just my life that changed but our family’s life. I had to apply for disability and put my career on hold. My son Hunter left school and came home to help my Mother to care for me. And my mother, my best friend, took over and helped us stay afloat. I am at a time in my life that it should be me that is caring from my Mom and I HATE it that I can’t. Out of boredom, I started looking around at possible crafts to do to pass the time. However living off of a disability income is Impossible, so my search went from something to pass the time, to something that could help bring in a income to help my family. I found Mosaic’s and decided to give it a try. Turns out it is perfect for me. So I buckled down and began to teach myself the different techniques and mediums that can be used to create this beautiful art. I love that pretty much anything I can think of I can do.So I started this business to help my family make ends meet. God has blessed us in more ways we can count the last few years. He has provide for us, clothed us, healed us as a family, and I believe with all my heart that He WILL heal me someday, in one way or the other. Now, He has provided us with the means to begin this store and we want to PRAISE Him in everything that we do. We can wait to share our many blessings with you by making you a one of a kind, handmade piece of art to display in your home. As it is made with love and care, we will be praying for you and your family and that you are as blessed as we are with your beautiful one of kind Mosaic art. We continue to stand on our faith today and always, ONE STEP AT A TIME. Like a mosaic life’s path has valley’s and hills, sometimes it is sharp and will cut. But we have Faith that that the father see’s the big picture and see the beautiful peace that our Lives will become.
