Meet Eva Crawford

with Eva Crawford Art

Eva Crawford is an award-winning professional artist mostly focusing on individual personalities with their subtle nuances as she paints, draws, or collages beautiful vessels of the human soul. Her interactions with former high school students and her own 5 children, which include a son from Uganda, transformed her art to be about humans and their stories. Crawford’s desire is to give visual voice to fellow humans and to foster ultimate healing by investigating the unity of the human experience. Her at times intricately slow artworks reflect the necessary time required to know another human and to gain understanding. Crawford's joy is commissioned portraits which capture the essence and soul of the subject. She specializes in memorial and honorary paintings commemorating loved ones and notable figures. Eva Crawford is also a Kintsugi Experience facilitator who has led healing workshops in India, and throughout the US. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken vessels with gold to make stronger, beautiful, and more valuable pieces while highlighting the scars essential to the story.

After 9 months of working on charcoal portraits of people doing good in the community, the Your Good Neighbor CLT art show final reception celebration took place. Donations were collected for 3 fabulous organizations, and the Good Neighbors got to take their portraits home for free!

Crawford's Kintsugi: the utterly broken vessel is made new. Beauty from brokenness. As Makoto Fujimura said in Art + Faith, “New Creation fills the cracks and fissures of our broken, splintered lives, and a golden light shines through…reminding us of the abundance of the world that God created, and that God is yet to create through us.”
