As an artist, I view each painting as a faith endeavor into the unknown guided by a silent intuitive voice, this is a gift from God. As I work, I am inspired by the wonderment of nature with its depth and beauty and then step back and ask myself, “how did I do that?” So much of my inspiration comes from local parks and nature preserves in Ohio and the surrounding states, even my own country road and backyard.
Drawing and painting have been a part of my life since childhood. My parents enrolled me in art classes with the prominent Mason Ohio artist at that time and her teachings have been with me ever since. Fondly remembering that experience, I passionately teach drawing and painting to students of all ages in my studio and in the past have taught art in a co-op home-school environment. I am currently a member of the Ohio Pastel Artists League. My paintings grace the walls of many homes across the country and I have accumulated many ribbons and awards for my work. I reside with my husband Ray on a small three-acre farm where my studio is located, have 3 daughters and 7 grandchildren! I also enjoy my garden and have a menagerie of assorted animals on the homestead. For more information, my website is www.jodyballart.com.
I am in love with God and nature and know that God the Father and Creator has much more imagination than me. Therefore, I use His creation as my guide. Art is an inborn passion for me. I am possessed with the colors, forms and textures that are possible in the creation of two-dimensional art. Believing that God is the giver of all good things, I am truly thankful for the opportunity to be able to express my heart in a way that can bring joy and peace to the beholder.
