Hello! My name is Laurie Anne Winn, the owner of this creative business. Creating There and Back started by the encouragement of my husband. I never thought I would start my own art business, but thanks to his push and support I started painting for others and haven’t looked back since!
I have been married to my wonderful husband for eight years, and we have three precious children - Peggy Anne, Jay, and Phoebe. Being a wife and a mom is a blessing from the Lord that I daily treasure.
I have always been an artistic person, but earlier in life it was for my own enjoyment. After graduating college with an interior design degree I decided to share my artistic passion with others! I fell in love with combining my problem solving, designer, graphic design, and hand drawn work into my own creative art pieces.
How did Creating There and Back get it’s name? “There and Back” is actually a term my husband and I use when expressing our love for one another — “I love you there and back.” It means that no matter what life may bring I will love you all the way there and all the way back. How does this inspire my artwork? My customs are to capture a precious moment in time you and/or others cherish. You can look back and see how you and others have all grown together. I pray we all are thankful for and learn from the past and embrace the present.
Not only do I have the privilege to paint these pieces for you, but I also have the honor to pray over them and you. Each custom painting is prayed over throughout the entire process: sketching, painting, packaging, and sending. I pray you, your family, and friends know the Lord and make His Name known.
I daily create simple artistic pieces for you and your family and friends to enjoy! It is truly a blessing to do what I love! My prayer is for this business to bless others and glorify the Lord.
Thanks for stopping by! Please look around my shop and let me know if you have any questions.
Head on over to my Instagram and Facebook accounts to follow along with what I’m currently working on!
It is my prayer to create an encouraging environment to guide families to daily abide in Christ.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
