The mission of Redemption Art is to help free people through art.
You are the only you. No one else in the whole world is like you. God created you special. We live in a world that just entangles us. You are meant to be free. Jesus has come to set you free in His love.
Jesus says it best in Luke 4: 18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that the captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free…” This is the heart of Redemption Art.
I, Caitlin Beidler, began Redemption Art officially in 2006. I studied at The University of Richmond, double majoring in psychology and studio art. I spent a semester abroad at the University of Ulster art school in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 2001, which really began my understanding of art as a way to express my faith. I graduated from University of Richmond in 2002, with a BA in Psychology and Studio Art.
I now live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I spent about 10 years pursuing art as a career, travelling all over locally, the states, and internationally, painting professionally and with various non-profits. I currently teacher k-8 art, and I continue to paint locally and travel doing live painting, custom artwork, workshops, classes, camps, and international work. I also helped begin and manage a 501c3 with my sister that serves and empowers our family in Haiti: www.thegrowingroots.org. Redemption Art does a lot of work in collaboration with Growing Roots.
My personal freedom in art and mainly in Christ, I would like to dedicate to four people. One, my dad. He can make something out of nothing, and he showed me creativity as a kid. He also named Redemption Art. Second, my mom, who always drew for me growing up, especially to teach me things. I get it from her. Third, Kimberly Dawn Crowder, an art prodigy, my mentor, and soul sister who told me not to do it if I didn’t love it. Fourth, Scott Erickson, whose art and words help me every day not to give up. Thank you, Jesus.
