Where are you in your
artistic journey? It can help to take a peek at another's journey to help you on your own.
My name is Sara Joseph, and I created Christian Artist Resource in an effort to encourage you in your creative pursuits as you grow in Christ. I share lessons that I've learned in my journey with the Lord. If you doggedly refuse to follow anyone but Jesus, you will, as I am now, enjoy the adventure of your life!
Who am I? Just a gratefully redeemed Christian, a visual artist and a writer, with an insatiable curiosity to understand and live all that the Bible promises. My hands created all the art on this site, except when another visiting artist is specifically mentioned. This is my offering to God.
Like my biblical namesake, I laughed first at the possibility of a God
interested in anything concerning me! Fortunately, He was bigger than my
cynicism and infinitely patient. All that I am today is because of Him. All that I will be
tomorrow, will also be because of Him. Jesus is the one you need to
For over three decades, I've been involved in the arts - creating,
exhibiting, teaching, selling art and even running a gallery, which I once co-owned with other artists. I work in
multiple media ranging from pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics
and oils to sculpting in terracotta and polymer clay. For me, the choice of media takes second place to the content of the work.
Choosing early to let Jesus lead, I purposed to do my best to
follow. Of course, there was a lot to learn about following, and I was often a
reluctant student. It has been as much of a challenge to not run ahead of Him as it has been to keep His pace! Prone to wander off the path, I
chased many selfish fantasies before being persistently and firmly
redirected. He has prodded me out of my comfort zone far more than I could
ever have thought possible. There is a lot about me today that I find
completely unrecognizable and amazing. I am still in His school, and will be, until I draw my last breath. I cannot fathom what more He may have in store for me! All I know is that it will be GOOD!
He is faithful. If you stay the course, a few years from now you too will look in wonder at what God accomplished through you and your art.
Artist Resource is here to help you along in that artistic pursuit. I could not have create this site without the help of some terrific tools. Built without any prior computer
knowledge, this site has now taken on a life of its own. If you would like to create a website to feature your own art, I heartily encourage you to do so. If I could do it you can too!
May the account of my journey help you find your place in the Body of Christ to serve Him with your art. There is no greater privilege than serving Jesus!
