I am a pastor’s wife and retired Christian school teacher. After teaching elementary and middle school classes for many years, the Lord combined my teaching experience with my love of art, and I had the joy of teaching studio art and art history with a Christian emphasis to kindergartners through high school seniors for many years. I have also taught Christian history to all ages, including adults. This perspective adds to my thoughts about art through the ages. In addition, I am a writer, with articles and devotionals in adult and children’s publications.
I grew up in Maine right on the coast, and I love the beach. When the fall storms came I loved to stand on the rocks and watch giant waves roll in to crash over the rocks and send spray high into the air. The American artist, Winslow Homer, also loved the ocean, and he spent many years painting it from his studio in the town where I grew up. When I see Homer’s paintings I can still hear the roar of the waves and recognize many of the places I love.
After living in Oklahoma and Texas for the last ten years we have moved to Colorado and are now enjoying sunsets over the Rockies. I continue to write, teach, and speak about art, writing, and Christian history. Here’s a link to my website, if you’d like to see the workshops and other presentations I do. http://www.kathy-oneill.com
