Cover Winner Celeste Rickert

“So much of art is connecting with our souls. I focus, I pray, I listen and I create. The passion behind my artwork is fueled through faith and the process of bringing life to those who have passed over. It is a spiritual movement that can only be felt. Too often our loved ones, friends, pets, icons and hero’s have left this earth. Knowing my portraits bring a small piece of joy to many, fulfills a piece of my heart that is priceless. I began this journey 12 years ago my junior of college and through it all, have come to find my calling. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and if so, I do believe portraits live to tell that truth. Whether living or deceased, many of us will never fully know the secrets and stories a soul withholds. As for me, drawing them will keep lighting this fire to continue my dream. Cheers to finding your purpose and never stop growing.”
