"Mother of Life" ...The 2012 cover of the Christmas issue of Columbia Magazine, depictsOur Lady of Guadalupe, kneeling in adoration of her unborn Savior-son.

Nellie Edwards began doing fine art  'Portraits of Life and Truth" in 2007 - acting on a sudden inspiration to create a 'portrait' of  then "Blessed" Kateri Tekakwitha.  To the artist's surprise, this was quickly approved by the National Tekakwitha Conference and later became the canonization issue cover of Columbia Magazine, as well as the cover of a biographical book (OSV Publishing) etc.  

Nellie has been a ProLife activist since 1983 and along with her small group, was put on trial, for peacefully offering assistance to young mothers....where abortions were being committed.  Through the intercession of The Blessed Mother, they were vindicated.  When moving to North Dakota, she prayed, asking God what she could do for the cause of Life in such a rural place....She is very thankful for the artwork, which has shown itself to be at least part of the answer to that prayer.

Nellie dedicates her artwork ("heart-work") to the Sacred Heart of Christ and to Our Lady, who is a constant source of inspiration.  Please enjoy your visit. Come back often and share PaintedFaith.NET with your family and friends.
