I am pleased to have the lovely and talented Nicole Ensing as a guest blogger again!

Ensing’s original music has been described as a combination of “jazz stylings with folk charm and rock ’n’ roll energy”.

The Art as Worship team that I lead in our church invites our congregation into a deeper reflection of who God is through exhibits hosted in our church art gallery. Recently the Art as Worship team held a mixed media cross workshop to prepare our congregation for Lent. As an artist myself mixed media is something I have been experimenting with for the last few years. I am intrigued by the use of found objects and scoured my husband’s shop for construction materials. The measuring tape in this piece is particularly interesting during the time of Lent, and the viewer is invited to consider what it means to be measured by the cross.
