A long, long time ago I graduated with a Master's degree in Graphic Design and have had experience working with design, marketing and printing companies in various states. Ten years ago I began having thoughts there was something missing in my life. It was at that time I was personally saved by Jesus, my Lord and Savior through a vision. Born again, I began seeing the world differently - taking photographs of nature, found objects, architecture and places. The Holy Spirit leads me in digitally collaging these photographs with His living Word. Almost every design has a "story" on how it was inspired. Read here
how God works through me in the creative process of "It Is Well." My passion is to reflect God's beauty and love through my artwork - and testify how He speaks to us every day.
In the beginning we produced notecards and frameable prints. Continually encouraged by our customers and their needs, we now offer canvases, journals, banners, blankets, pillows, shower curtains, tote bags, coasters, coffee mugs, and more.
Mara Bochart Design reflects my personal and intimate relationship with our Father God. Believing the vision was bigger than us, we created Shine Living, LLC as the umbrella company. We are partnering with other artists and world ministries to share their gifts and talents – giving all glory to God. We envision opening another gift gallery with a coffee bar, library, river, fellowship/prayer rooms, a 24/7 Israel presentation - a sanctuary immersed in the beauty and presence of the Lord. We see His beautiful Word on highway billboards, semi trucks and apparel - drawing people to our loving Father, and revealing how He speaks to us each day.
There are many artists that are much more qualified and much more talented than me - I thank God that I can reflect His Spirit and shine my light in His Kingdom.
My husband and I live in Ohio with our three beautiful sons and a Boxweiler puppy!
love and blessing to you!
