Barbara Bjelland

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am an artist, and illustrator, author and chaplain. I create artwork in pencil, oil, and oil pastel. I create original artwork including figures and landscapes, and write, illustrate and design children's picture books. Much of my visual artwork has a narrative or theological theme. I have published an intergenerational, interdenominational book on Communion entitled, "Supper with the Savior," which is available from me or on Amazon. I also lead intergenerational workshops/retreats, around the theme of the Eucharist/Communion.
