Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog!
I am an elementary muisc teacher about to start my first year teaching. I am passionate about instilling music into children's lives, and providing a place to exceed in school. Growing up music and art were the only places I excelled in school as I struggled with the gift of dyslexia, and I want to provide that safe place to other students.You won't find a lot about teaching specifically here on my blog though. I love teachingthough and sometimes it sneaks into my art too. For me this is a place where I can share my heart and my art.
Art has become a safe haven for me to express and process my feelings, emotions, experiences, and ideas. I don't have a lot of traditional artistic training and believe that God has given me this talent to share and worship Him with others. I am an acrylic contemporary abstract painter for the most part. My most common subject for painting are birds. I paint birds because I believe they are symbols of freedom and joy. After living in the captivity of others expectations and judgement I have known the stifling cage of conformity and loneliness. Jesus has given me a new understanding of what true freedom is. In my works I try to convey the vibrancy of seeking Christ's freedom, and the beauty of His creation.
The purpose of this blog is to share my heart and struggles with others in a meaningful and impactful way that show my REAL life in love with Jesus. I want to share with others that living for Christ is a messy thing and maybe help others and myself know that we aren't alone in this. I titled my blog Carliann Reviewed because I see this as a place to take some time and review what life has placed before me. You can expect to find paintings, poetry, and questions here.
