Artist Statement

“When art flows from a life lived in Christ,
a reflection should appear …

revealing more of
His loving creative nature,
His welcoming posture,
His desire to reach in and touch our hearts.

If our eyes are open, we will see Him:
in the radiant opening of a Japanese water lily,
the sparkling eyes of a 98 year old friend,
or fingers picking out an
unexpected harmony on guitar strings.

Images of His love will catch us by surprise,
if our eyes are open.

I want my art work
to bring Christ more and more
into the lives around me”.


Susan S. Weilbacher (1999)
