ABOUT THE ARTIST: Linda Kelly-Nothnagle is today legally blind. After years of being an artist by trade and a missionary by heart, illness stole her vision and doctors pronounced her situation as incurable, progressive and eventually fatal. Instead God chose to reverse the irreversible disease. After years of struggle the Lord has restored what the doctors could not.
She was born again into Jesus Christ from deep sin in 1984 and made her first missions trip in 1991. She spent many years executing missionary excursions and escorting groups on short term trips into various areas of Central America and Southern Mexico.
She is now able to return to art as a means to raise funds for missions work. Her goal is to enter Cuba as soon as diplomatic relations will allow it.
These works are from a collection of pastels “Dahlia’s, Daises and Hibiscus”. These renderings of enormous brilliant blooms symbolizes her rebirth of service to the Lord through her art.
