Artwork by Linda Bickston
In loving memory of my daughters Jamie, 2002, and Alyssa, 2019.
My ambition with my art is to reflect my deep love for Jesus Christ. He directs my pencil with each portrait that I draw.
I didn’t begin my career until later in life. I had no idea that I would be traveling down this road, but my Lord had other plans for me.
In 2002, my eldest daughter passed away suddenly, and unexpectedly. She was 24 years old. This left me with such deep sorrow that I was lost. God has given me an outlet for my grief. He has allowed me to draw.
I began to see visions of dark and light patterns. I didn’t know yet that God was beginning to prepare me for His purpose.
I started with using just graphite pencil, and continue to this day using only this medium.
If I can bless one person with His love, then I am fulfilled.
