If you have a love for art and an inspiring story, you are in for a special treat when you pick up artist and author Jane Lazenby’s new book, Expressions- Artwork & Stories Woven with Grace. It is a narrative of pain and process, of beauty and beholding.The coffee table style book is filled with 40 plus short stories, each with a painting and a powerful footnote from God’s Word. “I enjoy painting expressions and emotions that go with stories I have written,” explains Lazenby adding “I have a desire to connect with other women through my art and to offer encouragement and inspiration.” Chapters like “Restored by His Love,” “Pressed and Refined,” “Sweet Whispers of Grace,” and “Repurposed,” will pull on your heart strings while sharing with you the power of God’s grace.
Lazenby dedicated the book to her mother, Louise, who always encouraged her in everything she did. “It was through her illness in 2010 and her journey to her heavenly home, that I also started a journey of art and writing,” says Lazenby.
