Welcome to AWBA

For Your Creative Spirit

As one who uses expressive art as a form of prayer for myself and others, I offer these websites and blogs and will update them as time goes on.  If you know of another resource like this that others may find helpful in connecting to the Holy in a creative manner, email me.

http://www.expressiveartsflorida.com - Expressive Arts Florida offers a wide range of in-person workshops based in Sarasota, Florida as well as a free e-book and Internet-based offerings.

http://libbybyrne.com.au - Libby Byrne is an art therapist living in Melbourne, Australia.  She uses creative expression with others, and for herself as one living with multiple sclerosis.  Libby's art is included in the 2014 Beginning Again retreat experience.

http://thesacredalter.blogspot.com - Artist Stacy Wills creates beautiful mandalas and other artwork along with poetry to express her prayer life.  I have participated with Stacy on a few online retreats for a few years now and feel like we are kindred spirits although we have never met personally.  She is an avid AWBA supporter.

http://paintedprayerbook.com - Author Jan Richards provides inspirational art and words to invite personal reflection.  I have a couple of Jan's books and enjoy her writing.

http://abbeyofthearts.com - Christine Valters Paintner offers a wonderful on-line opportunity for all things creative and inspiring to connect more deeply with your own faith experience.  Christine has been a mentor, teacher and all around encourager for me for about three years now.  Her website and the excellence with which she offers her programs has been an inspiration for AWBA.

http://www.yesandamenblog.blogspot.com - Junelle Jacobsen is an artist, photographer and actual shepherdess.  She has navigated hard times and and found a beautiful way to bring life into the darkness.  Her photography is amazing.  I have taken a few of her online art classes and she has inspired me to create art I did not know existed within me.
