So what exactly is 4 Ewe and You and U?
• 21 art pieces (paintings and illustrations) I am creating that were inspired by the Holy Spirit, while working with several multi-national ministries.
•The entire project has a sheep theme, as inspired by John 10:14-16, Jesus as Shepherd and we, the people of God, as part of the sheepfold, (including women as shepherds). There is one Shepherd, Jesus Christ, and one sheepfold (us).
I couldn't wait to start this project. I created two mixed-media illustrations just to free up some brain space because they couldn't wait to get out of my head! (See Below)
I am planning on creating a devotional/exhibition book at the end of the project. I am already looking for exhibition space.
Please help fund this project by pledging TODAY. Thank you.
There is so much sheep imagery in the Bible. I remember growing up in rural North Carolina, at five years old listening to my grandmother talk to me about Jesus. The print above, Washed in the Blood of the Lamb, represents the imagery from my then five year old mind trying to reconcile how the blood of Jesus (the sacrificial lamb) could cleanse anything and make it white as snow.
Below is a picture of me on an early cool March day in 2012. I am holding one of about seventy-five sheep I helped shear that day. The lamb I am holding is named Gretel and she was so sweet and lovable. I wanted to take her home with me. Gretel will definitely have an illustration or two dedicated to her.

Risks and challenges
My perceived obstacles have to do with accurately capturing authentic cultural representations of the flocks represented. It is my hope that the unifying thread that binds each culture to the faith, and to one another, shines throughout the body of work.
Another challenge may be the need to find a exhibition space where the flocks of varied denominations feel equally welcomed and uniquely represented.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
