Taproot Series - Yellow: The Call

rooted in faith, pencil drawings with christian themes, religious black and white art
Taproot Series - Yellow: The Call

The "Taproot" Series is very dear to me. The prevailing theme deals with having emotions, experiences, chasing dreams - while being "rooted" in our faith. Proverbs 16:9 states "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps." In this series of drawings, the juxtaposed imagery of the "tree of life" and the fragile human, clothed in shadows and flowing fabric, shows the beauty of life and creation when the "roots" are in place. This series captures the raw emotions I've felt throughout my walk with God, and is a bit of a self portrait of feelings and beliefs.

Taproot Series - Yellow: The Call
Transition is a scary place to be. It can feel like standing at the edge of a cliff with no guardrail. This artwork focuses on that feeling of hanging from the edge to chase a dream. If our steps are established by the Lord, we're still firmly rooted, even during those petrifying moments. Philippians 3:13-14 states "Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

These prints are still in production phase and not yet available. Check back soon!

About the Artist:

horse artist, equine artist, PSSM horse
Since starting my art business in 2004, I have been on a roller coaster ride that's taken me from art, to house flipping, to legal assistant, to horse trainer, and a full 180* back to my artworks.

I'm thankful to get back to my art, and also for the life experiences I've gained.
