Cathy Adams is originally from Holland, Michigan where her love for photography was inspired by Lake Michigan sunsets, the Tulip Time festival, the Grand Haven Musical Fountain, and her large family. After moving to the Ozarks in 2009, her focus shifted to dogs, especially those who were ready for adoption and just waiting to become someone’s BFF (Best Furry Friend). As life took her in different directions, she began to focus more on landscapes, wildlife, her best selling sunsets, the Kimberling City Bridge, and eagles, though none of that has diminished her love for pet photography. She gives God the glory for all her accomplishments. Click here to see Cathy's art.

Janet Woods is a beautiful soul, full of grace and peace. Her love for God shows as much on the back of the canvas as on the front. Each painting is based on a Scripture that she writes on the back of the canvas. She paints freely and heavy in oil, and every painting has spiritual character. Here is what she says: "Art is a passageway that allows me the opportunity to listen from within and through which I may become an instrument of creativity. When I get into this prayerful mood, I trust this relationship to help me use brushstrokes to communicate a joyful freedom. These brushstrokes may become a creative moment to communicate my experience". Click here to see Janet's art.

Then she paints the beautiful images (you will love the eyes!) of beloved pets and other of God's creatures that will strike the emotion within you.
