|Everything is Beautiful|
Faith is a painter, labor support doula and creator of Leaves and Feathers, her Etsy shop. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her son is almost 6 years old and her daughter is 3 and 1/2. Faith started painting in High School and then more seriously in college. As a busy Mom myself I can appreciate the challenges as well as the inspiration that she encounters being a working Mom. If you'd like to read more about what Faith experiences as a working mother, take some time to read her recent interview on Art Biz Mama.
Faith's artwork truly portrays beauty and a message of serenity and giving. When I first discovered Faith's work, I felt a sense of peace and calm as I scrolled through all her beautiful paintings. To read more about Faith and her amazing work, visit her Leaves and Feathers blog.

If creating beautiful art isn't enough, Faith also is a professionally trained labor support doula who offers support to women and their families through out pregnancy and birth. I wasn't familiar with the term doula before I read about it on Faith's blog. "Doula" is an ancient Greek work meaning "handmaiden". If you'd like to find out more about this interesting practice, read Faith's blog about birth doula service.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Faith and her artwork as much as I did. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you Friday. Stacie
