Title: Beauty in God’s Eyes
Materials: Calligraphy with lipstick
Description: Through time, society has set different standards for beauty. By fixing our eyes on Jesus, we can have confidence in the beauty that He crafts within us and not focus on what the world says is beautiful. We must never forget that how we look on the outside is not nearly as important as how we are in the sight of the Lord.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. – Psalm 139:14
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. – 2 Corinthians 4:16
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. – 1 Samuel 16:7
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. – Proverbs 31:30
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. – 1 Peter 3:3-4

Why do I create?
For this reason: I do what I do because I owe everything to Christ! He is the reason for my being.
My name is Phoebe and I am a 24-year-old multimedia designer born and raised in Manila, Philippines. I was blessed to be born into a Christian family but it took a couple of rough bumps on the road during my time in school before I learned to fall in love with Christ again.
Photography was my first love, but I was encouraged to widen my boarders by taking up multimedia arts in college. Out of the many skills I’ve tried to master, hand-lettering was the one that felt like home. It very quickly became something I am passionate about not only because of the art itself, but because of the messages I am able to convey with it.
I draw inspiration from my own experiences and emotions hoping they point others to Jesus so that they may also experience fullness of life in Him.
