Faith Evans-Sills

I’m Faith, painter, wife, mother, teacher, world traveler, I am in the midst of a very busy season of life and I wear many hats often in the same day. While being a mama is always my main focus I also have 20+ years of personal painting experience and I enjoy inspiring others to manifest their most heartfelt ideas through creating art. My art has been exhibited widely, included in multiple publications and I teach international art retreats for women. I live with my husband and 3 young children by the sea in Charleston, South Carolina, where we enjoy exploring southern beaches and maintaining a close connection with nature through frequent trips to wild places. My first book Painting the Sacred Within, co-authored with my friend Mati McDonough, was published in May 2017 with North Light Press.
