Giveaway {katherine york art}

This evening I’m just about ready to SQUEAL!!!! I get to introduce you to one of my bestest {couldn’t think of a more fitting word!} friends… ever. Katherine and I met in college, and some of the storms life has brought each of our ways since then, has made us even closer.

She makes the most fantastic mosaic crosses, and she dabs in watercolor and sculpture too. Her work is truly stunning.

Recently I had the pleasure of designing her website+blog for her! Be sure to check it out if you get a chance :)

Today Katherine is giving away this lovely cross below, that sorta stole my heart! It’s been sitting in my kitchen for awhile – I was just waiting for the holidays to pass before launching this giveaway.

In her own words, Katherine shares a little about her artwork and inspiration…

Hey everyone. Thank you so much for taking a look around. Thank you Fran as well for being such a sweet friend and huge supporter of what the lord is doing in my life through art. I love you friend!!!

Art is a huge part in my life and I have been so blessed by it. I have played around with art my whole life but it all made sense when I was searching for a degree in college. I fell in love with mosaics in 2004 during a difficult time in my life.

God used it to being healing and I just can’t stop now.

I can make any kind of color cross just message me and let me know. Keep checking back I’ll be adding the stories behind some of the pieces I’ve made  Be blessed and let me know what you think.

-Much love, Katherine

    I would love to be entered in this giveaway. It’d be for my son, Enzo who passed away after 4 hours and 25 minutes of life on July 29, 2011. His favorite color is green so I would love the cross to be green :) and his favorite animal is a frog so maybe the center piece could be one of a frog? That would be so amazing! It is a beautiful masterpiece for our angels!! Thank you for sharing!
