Nancy Carow
Photographer +
Oakridge TN

Featured Image > "Symbols of the Church" - Painted wood, 2005 — "Photography for me is a process of purposeful looking. It is a means of revisiting childhood pastimes ... I pick up my camera as if for the hunt, to find the extraordinary in the ordinary."


Rachael Clearfield
Leicester NC

Featured Image > "Listen" - Oil on canvas, 2001 — "On the surface I am a woman, homemaker and wife of recording artist, Ron Clearfield. But inside, I am a creative spirit and my art has become a manifestation of my inner experience of God and Life."


Brie Dodson
Fairfax VA

Featured Image > "Sacred Ground" - Oil on canvas on panel, 2003   "Plein aire painting is refreshing and restorative. I have equipment well-suited to painting under nearly any circumstance, and I take advantage of it. I never leave the house without a plein aire painting kit."


Lorna Effler
Ocala FL

Featured Image > "Christ Child"  Oil on canvas "My paintings are “art with a purpose” to spread the Gospel, to give revelation, to use as a witnessing tool, to make a faith statement, to encourage people that God’s promises are true."
