Toni Wesner is a figurative and abstract artist, whose mixed media paintings portray imagery that she is spiritually moved to create, connecting them with the One who gives her life, inspiration and hope. Toni’s work is deeply layered with color, collage, scripture, scribbled words of worship and prayer, broken lines and symbols with a spiritual narrative.
“Creativity has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I spent hours coloring and cutting out colorful images in department store catalogs as a child, which progressed into a love for the arts. Once in school, I excelled in assignments that involved creative expression. I love nature and enjoyed long walks on the land surrounding our home and began to draw and take photos with a camera received for my birthday. In my early teens, I discovered fashion magazines and a whole new creative world opened up to me. I loved the images, the stories they conveyed, the design and color. I moved to Dallas shortly after high school to pursue a Fine Arts degree at Texas A & M University in Commerce, Texas and Fashion Design at Wade College.
