About

One God - One Goal - His Glory
Hello, my name is Shawn Collins, and I love to create! From childhood doodles, to pen and ink illustrations, and now in my exploration of printmaking, I’ve always loved the challenge of bringing the visuals in my imagination out into reality.

For many years I have created artwork simply for the joy of creating and I never put much thought behind what I was making. But then something changed. I changed. Or better yet, God changed me.

When that took place, the what and why behind my creating also started to change, and began to focus on one great goal. The goal of God’s glory. Now as an artist my purpose in creating is to point others to the glory of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is out of this desire that I started Christ Life Art and wrote my artist statement to reflect it:

I create to encourage faith, by cultivating a deeper love for God, through a wider view of his glory.

That is why I say that there is one God, and I have one Goal, to proclaim His glory.

So how do I do this?

Visual Exhortation
This is the use of visual art mediums as a powerful means of communication to point viewers to the glory of God. Starting in 2020, every new piece that I create will be accompanied by a short video to give clearly to the message behind it. This also allows for those who purchase one of my works to be equipped to speak to the art’s meaning if they are asked about it.

Hope Drops
With every new print I create, I place three of them in public places around Oklahoma City and surrounding towns for people to find. Each of these free prints comes with two QR codes. One code leads to the video about the art’s meaning and the other leads to a video where I share a short testimony of how God has saved me. This is a great way to engage the community and help others find true hope!

Made for Glory
I have a passion for stories where people can look back at hardships and trails, and praise God for how he used the difficulties in their lives. People who are willing to talk honestly about the pains, but also about how God works to reshape us through those experiences. Currently, the Made for Glory project is an idea that I’m needing more help to get off the ground. The vision of Made for Glory is to one day have a podcast where I’m interviewing people who want to share their story, and presenting them with a handmade wooden ring, free of charge, that can serve as a reminder of God’s work in their lives. I began making these rings for myself and my wife as reminders of what God has done in our lives, and I want to share that gift with others and help them tell their stories.

So, that is what Christ Life Art is all about!
