I made this picture for a friend whose father had passed away from cancer.
Inspired by the works of Disney and other family-related animations, I enjoy drawing fun-loving cartoons that are focused on spreading the love of God and His glorious truth! I call them "Scripture Pictures" :)
My process is tedious, but well worth it! I hand sketch the ideas on paper and then scan the rough drafts onto my computer, where I ink, color, and shade the entire picture until it practically comes to life! I use a basic "Bamboo Artist Tablet" to make it all possible.
Now, to be perfectly honest, I am not an "experienced illustrator." I have never attended an art school, nor have I ever contributed my work to other writers in the past. If an impressive degree is what you're expecting, then I stand before you with empty hands. I'm not here as a "Somebody," and I'm not here to BECOME a "Somebody." God has given me the gift of creating art, and nothing brings me greater joy than to spread His love through it :)
I may appear bold with my words, but they come from my heart. And my heart, as well as my God, is truly all that I am.
Thank you for your attention and time, dear Writer, and God bless you on your search. <3

On-The- Spot: Pet Commission
I am a creative, hard-working and spunky young woman. I've been drawing since I was young and selling art since I was thirteen. I have a passion for art; my soul aches when I cannot draw or sketch.
I am a Baptist preacher's daughter. I am a graduate of Word Of Life Bible Institute and currently attending another Christian college. I love fantasy, our merciful Lord Jesus, and creative thinking.
--Local art showings and sales.
--Running a small business selling my art online.
--I've provided concept art for four children's books.
My style is varied (as you will see in my portfolio), but it is often called "Whimsical." I tend to focus on details and produce a lot of art at once.
--I tend to work in pen and ink, including some brush work and ink washes.
--I have also produced pieces in pencil, colored pencil, and watercolor.
I am open for negotiation on prices.
I am willing to produce some basic sketches of some of the concepts an author would want and submit them through email.
Please contact me via email: Noel Merritt.

God Honoring Art
Hello! My name is Breana. I can do several types of art, including cartoon type drawings (such as the kind found in children's story books), acrylic paintings, black and white pencil drawings, colored pencil drawings, pen sketches, charcoal sketches, and pencil sketches. I also do realistic still life very well.
My favorite medium to work with is acrylic paints. I use light and shadow to bring out dimensions in my work. I enjoy creating whimsical scenes. I can also create, fun, bold, colorful pictures and realistic still-life.
Previous experience includes illustrating "The Greatest Treasure" and art on magazine covers.
I will not do illustrations for any book that is against my morals. I will only use my artwork for projects that honor God.

Artist on fire for Jesus
by Lisa Marie Mueller
(Grand Falls, Newfoundland, Canada)
Adventures In The Forest
Artist on fire for Jesus
Lisa Mueller has an extensive background in teaching visual arts as well as plenty of experience through her own life as a self-employed artist.
Lisa started four years of her formal education through a renowned Newfoundland artist, Christopher Pete. She later applied and was accepted into the Ontario College of Art and Design and finished her education at Memorial University of Newfoundland in Corner Brook. She has been recognized as a water-colourist, selling several of her paintings to the Canadian government as well as showcasing her work in galleries across Newfoundland.
She is also known for her sculpture work and has received much publicity through the eight foot tree carving of a pulp and paper mill-worker that she was commissioned to do for the city of Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Lisa has several qualifications which can offer the kind of experience and training that is beneficial to others.
While established in Peterborough Ontario, she began a large art gallery called Mueller’s Unit 8 on 280 Perry Street which soon became an experience of a life time as she was able to work along side many talented artists. She draws her inspiration from her faith in Jesus.
Should I call myself an artist? What does it mean to be an artist? Does it mean that I paint? That I draw? That I create? Is it a lifestyle? A way of thinking? A trend? A hobby? Maybe it is all of the above. What I truly am is a silly girl, one my friends say has more imagination than common sense at times. I am a girl who gets distracted by thought after thought, and I can lose myself in every aspect of my surroundings. I dream big and sometimes forget to think out all the little steps to get to where I want to go. I want to conquer everything, every idea, every dream, every exploration.
I adore every aspect of painting: the feel of a paintbrush between my fingers, the fresh smell of my watercolors, the crispness of a new canvas or paper, my pencil crayons, thousands of colors to express any moment, thought, feeling, the excitement of being inspired. All these things make up who I am and what I crave.
Not much makes me happier than having the opportunity to interact with others by creating something that is special to them. A small glimpse into the window of another’s life can show so much. It’s truly amazing to paint a precious moment in a child’s life and have it recorded for a parent to re-live each day. This is what makes me happy. This is my life.
I love people. To me, we are all family, and I feel blessed to have the chance to offer a painting, a moment, an experience that others can cherish for always. I was born with the gift to draw and paint, and it is exactly that - a gift! A gift from God, my father, my all. God has blessed my life in more ways than I even realize. I have moments where I take it for granted or even abuse it. Everything I have, everything I am, every talent, everything good, pure and beautiful is because of Him. I feel that it is my duty, my calling, my responsibility to share with you the gifts He has enriched my life with.
With much love,
Bonnie Everett-Hawkes, Published Children's Book Illustrator
