My name is Brenda Nippert and I am an artist. I received my education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I am married to a wonderful man and have six great kids who are almost all grown now. My work has always been interwoven with the rest of my life. I can remember sitting on a blanket in the yard with my drawing board on my lap while the kids ran matchbox cars up and down my back! My husband George, is the kindest most supportive man I could ever ask for, always making sure I had everything I needed to create and mother at the same time. My passion is Jesus, Mary and the Saints. Though I love them all dearly, I have an extra special soft spot for the American Saints. They are so little known, so I have taken it as my own personal mission to tell everyone about the treasures in our own backyard. They helped build our country into what it is today – abundantly blessed. The very fabric of our nation is woven with golden threads and we should all take it upon ourselves to uncover them and be blessed.
