                           used as book covers, and featured in the "Figures of Speech" gallery at Anderson

                           Museum of Art. In her words, "Creating artwork while meditating on scripture is so                                       calming and restorative for me... I’m trying out different techniques, such as painting

                           with straw using only my breath, or painting with a chain or a string." You can reach                                     her at:
