whats this chick all about anyway?
You have no idea how stoked I am that you ended up right here, right now! I hope that you have enjoyed, found inspiration, and feel more at peace after spending a little time on my site!
My hope is that whoever you are, whatever condition your heart is in and whatever circumstances you may be facing that you will be able to feel my love, passion, and deep commitment to creating pieces that breathe life into you.
Here's the deal y'all -- I never want to create pieces without drenching them in prayer and working at them with excellence. I believe that art is powerful and can be a sweet part of our healing journey if we come across the right piece at the right time. My hope is that God would use me to create that piece for you! Or - maybe when you were scrolling through the 'shop' tab, you found a piece that spoke loud and clear to your heart! You might have seen it and thought, "wow, it's like she made that specifically for me!" ...truth is, I don't know your story but God does, and He has a way of leading us to the right truth at just the right time.
Ruah is a Hebrew word that means
Jesus spoke 'Ruah' into my spirit eight years ago when I was sitting in total despair at eighteen years old. I heard the word, "Ruah" and my heart was never the same.
I was sitting at the coffee table with one hand gripping my mug and the other ready to flip through the Bible until I found any sort of hope. I was desperate to find something to give me any sort of relief during such a hopeless time of my life. I was on the verge of giving up because nothing seemed to be more powerful than the darkness I was enduring. I was 18 with a 3-month-old baby, feeling like a loser as I raised him on my own. My heart felt empty and betrayed like an orphan as my dad was laying on his death bed, and I was full of anger, confusion, and rage as my brother battled a heroin addiction leaving us in misery and shambles daily. My life was a mess and I had no idea how it would ever get better. I felt hopeless more than hopeful every second of every day. God met me in that moment and breathed new life into me, awakening my spirit, making me fully alive because when we are at the end of our rope it! is! a! good! thing! Matthew 5 tells us why -- "You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God. You're blessed when you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you."
HOW SWEET OF A THING IS THAT?! It hypes me up and makes me want to stand on the tallest rooftops and shout it for the world to hear. LET IT BE A GOOD THING WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF WEARY! LET IT BE A GOOD THING WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF READY TO GIVE UP! LET IT BE A GOOD THING WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING AND NO ONE ELSE TO TURN TO! BECAUSE THAT'S WHEN JESUS STEPS IN AND CHANGES E V E R Y THING!
So, there I was. at the end of my rope when He did the radical within me. He took what was dead, lost, broken, in desperate need of healing inside of my crooked heart and put a new spirit in me that has kept me alive and joyful through trials I have faced in these past 8 years.
The best news is -- the new spirit within me isn't something that came and went as things went from bad to good. It was something that ignited new life and broke chains inside of me helping me live differently forever on. It was a moment that took me from hating my life to looking at my life and realizing it had only just begun, eager to live the life God had handwritten for me.
HE BREATHED LIFE INTO MY DRY BONES!
And here I am today, ready to create pieces that He may use for His glory and YOUR freedom.
This whole Ruah Art business is way more than I thought it would be but Gods all about showin' up and showin off. He loves doing abundantly more than we ever dreamed.
He has already done so much more with all of this than I thought He would as I timidly created art and slowly started showing the world in embarrassment.
He has been faithful beyond measure in making sure this artwork breathes new life into dry bones.
I hope you are one heart that has new life breathed into you after spending a little time on here.
My artwork is created only to be a way of pointing others to the love and grace of Jesus.
i create with one hope in mind
FOR god TO use my art to breathe life into any part of your heart that has run dry.
mad lover of life ~
The more I fall in love with Jesus, the more stoked I become about every day life. J is waaaaaaaay too dope for us to live a basic life and I wholeheartedly believe it hypes Him up when we live our lives fully. I always imagine God on the edge of His throne cheering us on with joy as we go after the life He has for us.
I spend most of my days drenching my paintbrush in sunshine and adding color to anything and everything I can.
Nothing hypes me up more than helping people find healing, freedom, and abundance as they learn to be honest about their unspoken broken.
I am a full believer in skipping the bulls* and going straight to Gods good sh*.
I long to live a life that rings of authenticity and I hope Ruah displays exactly that ~
