Hello! We are Rhonda and Jen; 2 friends who love God and love Art! (We also love plaid.)
In early March of 2020, our time of social isolation had just begun. We realized that it was difficult to find theologically/spiritually grounded resources for children and families. We wanted to create a short, theological/spiritual and artistic resource for families to use at home. Thus, Art Spark was born! We strive to connect scripture and spirituality to lives today and express that connection through art.
Hello! I’m Rhonda, Minister of Faith Development at First Baptist Church Halifax. I grew up in Nova Scotia’s but lived on PEI for 17 years. I am a candidate for ordained ministry and I study at The Atlantic School of Theology in Nova Scotia. I enjoy writing, reading (especially Canadian Literature!), knitting, crafting, and just about any outside activity (unless it’s snowing.) I love working with children, youth and young adults, especially through art and creative projects. I studied in Religious Studies and English at the University of Prince Edward Island. It was while studying at UPEI that I developed a passion and love for creative writing and storytelling. I currently live in Dartmouth with my cat Susan and I enjoy being an aunt to my cherished niece and nephew.
