  • Story Behind the Art

    Since I am so involved in putting God's Word on parchment in creative ways, as I read Scripture I am constantly thinking of how I would arrange the various words to communicate the meaning. Several years ago when I came across John 3:30, I thought this arrangement might help convey this important prayer. May He continually increase in each of our lives, as we in turn decrease!
