Take a look and see the new things that are being created in my studio.  From finger painting to air tools, alcohol ink art is so fun and interesting to play with.  Then you add plaster and the possibilities are endless.

For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace- Isaiah 55:12

The JOY COLLECTION, created with alcohol inks on heavy Nara paper, is an expression of that reconnection.  

It is a celebration of colour and light as the soul re-awakens to the wonder of God and it's true identity.

Grounded in Isaiah 55, JOY  is a natural side effect one expressing themselves honestly and authentically.

When you look at the ocean, in all its vastness, you are drawn to it.  It beckons. Standing on the shore, there is a deep sense of peace.  As if, even in its great enormity, it will not swallow you whole but take you to where you need to go.  The call of God is much the same.  At times it seems too grand and impossible, yet you know if you're walking IN it, you are exactly where you are meant to be.

The circle is a universal symbol with deep extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, and original perfection.

It is infinite and timeless, an unending line with cyclical movement. 


In much of my past work, I have used the circle to represent God "whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere" (Hermes Trismegistus)

Each one of these paintings is based on one of my favourite scriptures, Promises spoken to me but that you can receive for yourself.

My hope is that you'll be reminded that you are loved and God has not forgotten the promises and dreams he has set in your heart.  

I pray that it acts as a talisman and redirects you to His faithfulness.

The Restore Collection by CMBear was inspired by the entire chapter of Isaiah 61 in the Bible where God offers all who mourn joy for sorrow and beauty for ashes.
