Creativity is God’s gift to us.  Using our creativity is our gift back to God.

Welcome to The Hermit Creative Website

Hello! I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and welcome you to The Hermit Creative website. My name is Kirsten aka “The Hermit Creative.” I am an art class junkie who can’t get enough of CreativeLive, Domestika, and Udemy. I am primarly a digital artist using Procreate, Photoshop, and my iPad. However, I also dabble in ink doodling and traditional watercolors as well. I love to write poetry, devotionals, flash fiction, and short stories. My mind is a constant whirlwind of creative of energy. I choose to see that as a blessing. Thank you so much for for stopping by my little creative corner of the world.

Today's prompt comes from dVerse. Here are the rules for the Prosery Prompt: Write a story of 144 words or less (not including the title). The story must have a beginning and an end, and should not be poetry. Sounds easy enough right? Here’s the twist: You must use...

Here is some of the artwork that I’ve been creating lately.  Enjoy!

A quick peek into my creative process: All of the artwork starts as an impression in my mind.  I get ideas from reading the Bible, listening to audiobooks, from online teachings, and lots of other places.  I then quickly jot down my ideas in my Evernote application.  Once I’m ready to start creating the actual artwork, I create the character in DazStudio.  I use Photoshop (and Procreate) for any postwork I choose to do.  Most pieces take me 5+ hours to create from start to finish.

Collection of Videos

Here is where you will find a collection of my videos.  Some are ones I created for Ministries, some are for Healing Thoughts, and then there are my favorite ones the timelapse videos of my artwork from start to finish.  I hope you enjoy them!
