As with "The Lamb of God," Liz seeks to fill in some of the space between the lines of what we commonly read about the life of Christ. In several places, Liz says, scripture records Christ's love for children. I wonder what children thought of him. I imagine scenes similar to this would have been common occurrences. It is the same imagination for the common occurances in His uncommon life that breathed such life into Be It Unto Me. Few have captured the combination of inner light and humanity in Christ the way Liz has.

The Artist

Liz Lemon Swindle

Liz Lemon Swindle has a deep, abiding faith that she feels blessed to share through her art. A lifelong Utah resident, she studied fine arts at Utah State University. She worked for several years as a set designer and painter for the Osmond Studios television production company. As her family grew (she and her husband Jon Swindle today have five children), she saw the need for a more flexible career and decided to focus on oil painting. In the early 1980s she tutored under renowned wildlife artist Nancy Glazier and soon after established her own impressive reputation as a wildlife painter, participating in shows at major galleries in the central and western United States. However, Lemon Swindle became increasingly discontent, feeling artistically and spiritually unfulfilled. In October 1988 she reached a turning point when she submitted a portrait of children to the National Arts for the Parks competition and received the coveted Founders' Favorite award. She realized then that there was an audience for her portrait painting and by the early 1990s she had devoted herself to the topic closest to her heart - her faith. A one-woman show of her Christian art traveled to cities nationwide in the summer of 1997.
