About the Book
Reading scripture has been an inspiration for me since I was a child. I feel it is alive and speaks to all of us.
‘Gifts from the Spirit’ is a collection of poems and images I have created based on the inspiration of some of my favorite scriptures.
It is my sincere wish, 'Gifts from the Spirit' reveals to you or to someone special in your life, a wonderful message of faith, hope and love.
I am a poet and I am a self-taught artist from Louisville. My art is a refection of growing up and living in Kentucky. I like to work with bright bold colors that bring alive my portraits of people, pets and landscapes. I am one of the fortunate people who dream in color and I put those colorful dreams and memories in my paintings and photographs. I work with acrylic paints on small to medium size canvas. I also enjoy photography and digital art. There is drama in everyday life and I like the challenge of taking a photograph and turning it into a piece of fine art. Everyone’s past, present and future is their own personal literature and through my art and photography, I seek to tell their story.
