Featuring Commentary from Designer, Emily Rose Scott
January 31, 2014 || Updated: February 1, 2014
Hello readers! As you can tell (from the boxes full of text), my good friend and role model—Emily Rose Scott has taken the time to give her feedback and expertise on each point! Emily is in her fourth year studying visual communications at Seattle Pacific University. Currently, she has plans to become an art therapist and continue to serve God through art and design! I’m honored that she would allow me to share with you her Godly perspective as a fellow believer in Jesus Christ. Having her evaluation has made me think more outside the box, reconsider some things, and helped me understand art on a deeper level. I hope you will appreciate her commentary as much as I do!
1. Art glorifies God.
This is my first point because it is the most important point. Since we are made in His likeness, we are creative beings. I am in awe of the amazing ability God has granted humankind to create. Art is not just for our enjoyment, but for His! Often times, I feel closest to God when I’m using my gifts to make something new. Like music is a form of worship for some, art is a form of worship for others. Each one is special in its own way.
I love this one (duh) haha. My identity as an artist is rested in the fact that I was created first. I created because I serve a God who has an eye for beauty. I seek to glorify Him through all of my work whether it is a painting I feel inspired to create or a logo for a client.
