"Drawing God's Comfort from Life's Pain"

About Me

My photo
Creating Art is my passion! I carry a sketch pad with me and whenever I am still I am drawing. I guess art is my addiction. Some of my paintings began as sketches on table napkins, envelopes, even graduation programs and then evolved into paintings, greeting cards and program cover designs. I was always in trouble as a child for leaving my sketches innapropriately on tables, desks, book shelves and sidewalks. My Art has graced the covers of nonprofit magazines, program covers for special events and greeting cards. I am now illustrating a childrens picture book. Take a look at my prints and contact me if my art style would enhance your next program cover, personalized greeting card or children's book idea.

 Read what others have said about JoEllen's Art Prints
 "Dear JoEllen......I am a counselor in Michigan and am doing a women's workshop in a couple weeks hoping to help women heal from woundedness, and was wondering if you would give me permission to use your drawing "Cocoon1" in powerpoint for my presentation? I am interested in your other art, also."

 Greetings of Peace.
I would like to ask permission to use "God's Comfort in Human Pain" as part of the instructional materials that I will use in a seminar-workshop on Handling Trauma in the Religious Formation Setting.

I am from the Philippines (Asia) and have been doing both formation work with the religous congregations and trauma work as a volunteer counselor. I am in the process of collecting materials which will be helpful for trauma survivor-formands using a holistic aproach, i.e., integrating the body-mind-spirit aspects in healing.

Thank you very much. I look forward to your positive response.
Sincerely yours,

"I wanted to write to you and tell you how much we love your artwork  I was having a 'down' morning, and I went searching for some positive things on the Internet to give me a lift.  I found the art gallery  and saw the one called "Cocoon" (with the child cradled in hands). It is so gorgeous. I wanted to tell you that just seeing it helped me feel safer this morning.Thank you for sharing your gifts. You are very talented. When something like this touches me, I always want to let the person know about it. Thanks so much.

Peace and Happiness,

  1. To my beautiful Mother in-law. I've always loved your art work. It brings so much peace to life. God has truly blessed your creativity. Now I have the joy in watching my young daughter follow in her Father's and Nana's foot steps in art work. Blessings you.
