Painting unleashes the creativity God put within me and connects me to Him in the deepest way. He inspires me daily. After all... He is the greatest artist there is!
Art has become a sort of refuge and form of worship for me. I see my Father in everything and I'm reminded of the beauty of His Son and His Spirit within us. The trees, the ocean, His Word, our human condition and struggles... they all show the beauty of God's creation and I paint from that place. It's how I connect to my Creator and it restores and fuels my soul.
My work is inspired by my walk with God and is especially inspired by God's creation in nature and scripture. I'm usually singing worship music at the top of my lungs while paint is slinging everywhere (especially on me)!
I was very sick for over 10 years with an incurable degenerative disease that led to over nine surgeries and countless procedures and physical therapy. I could barely leave my home and was in constant pain every day of my life but recently God healed me over 70% almost over night and I finally get to pursue my love of art again! I owe everything to Jesus and I want to praise Him in everything, especially my art! My desire is for my work to bring inspiration of God's beauty while helping causes close to my heart with a portion of my original artwork sales benefitting these causes.
I am an entrepreneur and painter. I both create and sell my original artwork but I also design and sell products and gifts with my artwork and other designes on them at shop.caraelaine.us. I enjoy every part of this creative process and am so thankful for this journey I get to be on.
