I'm Hope: an artist on an unexpected journey of living and healing through beauty.
What began as a creative experiment – teaching myself to paint while raising funds to adopt two of our children – has turned into a nourishing and life-changing experience.
Beauty has given me a deeply spiritual path forward beyond my personal limitations and circumstances.
The act of making something beautiful is continually becoming a source of solace in my life that I'm compelled to share with others. For me, painting is an act of hope and flourishing, bringing the light of the New into the here and now.
My work exists to bring these moments of light and beauty to the world – to create beauty that lifts us up and nourishes our heart and home, so that the ties that bind us to the good, true, and beautiful can flourish.
