About Marli

Hello there – thanks for stopping by!IMG_7029

A little about me… I am passionate about using life, and as a facet, art, to glorify Jesus Christ.

I paint digitally with Corel Painter or Photoshop, but also enjoy pencil sketching, watercolor painting, and graphic design.┬áRight now I’m busy illustrating a series of ten children’s books by Dr. William Lane Craig, to be published in 2012-13.

On the side I design logos, create a never-ending stream of wallpaper, dabble in mixed-media card making and vent through poetry… and I’ve lost my heart to third world missions and adoption.

All other random life bits are best summed in the words of C.S. Lewis, “You could never find a book long enough or a cup of tea big enough to suit me.”

I blog regularly at Cause for Joy

  1. Hey, I saw you listed as the illustrator for Dr. Craig’s book. Thanks for your work. It’s inspiring to see you using your talents to serve God. Your example is an encouragement for me.

  2. Your drawings are beautiful. The simple beauty and cleanness of “Wonder” blew me away, and your “Heather” is amazing. How /do/ you manage it? I’m following this blog now.

  3. Hi Marli , i found the first series of Dr. Craigs book in a magazine for Christian Children’s teachers magazine (God is Spirit) i was drawn to it immediately and wanted to get a copy for my Son who’s 6. i searched on Amazon and was excited to find the complete series and the topics covered. Reading through the excerpt, i saw your picture and a brief comment about you and your website which i decided to have a look through, i was blown away as i read about you,my heart is bubbling with Joy to know that God has a remnant from this generation who are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. God bless you indeed and great work. I pray that God will preserve you, and that your light will continue to shine brighter until ‘that perfect day’ .

    Shalom.
