Our Story      Bios      Milestones


By Adam

You could say I'm a slow mover. I met Andrea in 2002, when we enrolled in the commercial art program at Pensacola Christian College. Over the 7 years it took to earn our bachelors and masters degrees, Andrea and I became great friends but nothing more. Graduation day came, and we moved back to our families in Michigan and Ohio. However, we lived close enough to visit each other often. A year and half passed. Finally… I asked Andrea to be my girlfriend.

After another year and a half, I finally asked Andrea to marry me! When I did, I proposed with an unfinished painting. The day before, I secretly transformed Andrea’s barn loft studio into a coffee shop. The décor included a café table with two chairs and a framed print on the wall. The evening of my proposal, a trail of red leaves led Andrea to the café, where we enjoyed homemade Frappuccinos by candlelight. Then I led Andrea to the print and removed it from the frame to reveal a half-painted canvas underneath. I had painted a still life representing our relationship up to that point. I asked Andrea if she would complete the painting and if she would also complete me by being my wife. She said “yes.”

Andrea and I married in 2012. During our wedding, we signed the finished painting as a symbol of our unity.

We now live outside Kansas City, Missouri in the house my grandpa built many years ago. We have two sons, Gideon and Jaron.

Andrea and I love capturing the beauty of God's creation on canvas. We hope our work is an inspiration and encouragement to you!
