Faith Evans-Sills

Hi I'm Faith, painter, dreamer and creative guide. In my work I draw inspiration from nature’s wild and small moments, with my heart in Abstraction. I'm classically trained with both a BFA and MFA in painting, along with 20+ years of personal painting experience. Inspiring women to manifest their most heartfelt ideas through creating art is one of my passions! My first book, "Painting the Sacred Within" co-authored with artist Mati McDonough, is a guide for women, to go deeply inside themselves finding their own creative voice. My Painting the Sacred Within Classes are co-taught with Mati! I teach here online, across the US and internationally at art retreats in Morocco, Costa Rica and Mexico. My paintings have been exhibited widely and included in numerous publications. I live with my husband Frank and our 3 children by the sea in Charleston, SC.
