As a child, I was inspired to be an artist after learning The Lord’s Prayer. (Matthew 6:9-13). Believing that the prayer went, Our Father does art in Heaven. I thought, Wow! Art is very important! So, Our Father is creating masterpieces up in the heavens, COOL, I want to do that someday!
I am named after my father, John F Atkinson, Jr. Sadly, 3 months prior to my birth, Marine Pfc John F. Atkinson, Jr. was killed in action in the Quang Nam Province of Vietnam. So basically, I grew up believing my Father was up in Heaven with OUR Father doing Art!
Life is Beautiful!
I love my husband, Paul, and our beautiful amazing children. I am a proud “retired“ stay@home mom (although we rarely stayed home). I continue taking creative classes and design courses to enrich my life and those around me. As a Freelance Artist and Accredited Home Stager, I enjoy sharing my passion for creating an ARTFUL life! I hope to encourage others to reach their greatest potential and enrich our community.
