When we planned Issue 06’s neon color scheme and chose SPARK as our focus word we knew we had to reach out to Esther McCord! Her art is filled with vibrant color and rich texture that is sure to spark creations in 2022 and beyond, while her line of earrings will definitely inspire your wardrobe!

Esther, in her own words…

I am from a tiny town in deep South Texas, but I currently run a successful art studio, in Forney, Texas where I live with my husband, two dogs, three cats, and countless chickens. I have been painting and selling my work for a few years now and my inspiration stems from my everyday life, colors, sunsets, and my travels.

With a degree in Fine Arts, I had the privilege of teaching art to elementary students in my local community for almost ten years. I’ve hosted live paint parties and summer art camps for children and adults, in my home art studio. Currently, I am hosting virtual art classes per request. My goal is to help you fill your space with joy-sparking art!

WHEN I’M NOT IN THE STUDIO… You can find me volunteering my time to a worldwide Bible education program, traveling, watching my chickens peck the ground, or chasing sunsets!
