Welcome to my art studio. Here is where my story begins with a quick sketch. I began doodling as a young girl, on the walls, inside the cover of my books, any surface I could find . . . and haven't stopped since. Eventually I earned my BFA from Northern Arizona University, graduating Magna Cum Laude with an emphasis in graphic design and illustration. From there, I started my own business as an illustrator for books and other local publications. I also sold a line of custom handpainted apparel. As my heart became more grounded in the Lord, I began serving as a leader in the Ministry of Young Life, a Christian outreach to teens. It is there that I met my husband Ted. Together, we have two boys, David and Jeremy. For the past 19 years I have worked as an art teacher at a small Christian school, starting with elementary and middle school, and then adding high school for the last 8 years. It is evident that God has called me to worship and celebrate the beauty of his creation through art, and to share that passion with anyone who will listen, As an educator, mentor and artist, my goal is to help others understand that they are made in God's image, created for His glory and purpose. So let's take a moment, right now, and try to see ourselves through God's eyes. Beautiful, loving, imperfect . . . but full of potential! I hope that you will come back and visit me in this special place, an intimate art community. RMG
