It was also where she expanded into a new range of materials for painting including pastel, oil and acrylic. ... She is known as ‘God’s Artist’ because of the ‘Christian’ abstract imagery depicted in her paintings and her strong belief in God. Her style of art is considered “Biblical” as it reflects on messages from the bible and christianity. Using bright vibrant colors, layers, texture and contrast, she highlights abstract color blocks with simple use of contrasting colors and chalk pastels.
