Painting the life I live and love (2).png
IMG_4532.JPG

In 2002 art took on a new meaning for Jane. Her youngest sister was murdered at the hands of a violent boyfriend and grief stymied her creativity. Then, one night Jane saw a beautiful sunset and asked God for a sign that her sister was OK. She began to see shapes in the clouds -- joyful feminine and angelic shapes, dancing, leaping, rejoicing and she knew her sister was joyful in heaven, surrounded by the incredible love of God. 


Emmert began to paint these “Angel Cloud” shapes and eventually added her poetry to encourage and empower women and raise awareness and money for domestic violence organizations.

Love & Grief

I have survived life-changing hardships and still, I paint and write with joy because God pulled me out
of the deep valley of grief and turned the painful circumstances into powerful opportunities to grow,
using art and writing.

Love Letter From God

Love Letter From God
You are My masterpiece!
When I look at you,
I don't see your faults and failings--
I see your potential and MY plan for your life...

Grief Book

Angel Cloud Art

A touch of Heaven Here on Earth.  I love that God sees a masterpiece in each of us.  I picture Him

with a large paintbrush in His hand, mixing up wonderful colors and sweeping them across the canvas

of our lives. After my sister Amy passed away I started seeing shapes in the clouds -- joyful feminine

and angelic shapes, dancing, leaping, rejoicing and know that my sister is joyful in heaven, surrounded by the incredible love of God.

Life Is Oh-Too-Short
Life is oh-too-short to miss the chance to say I'm glad you're in my life.

A Wise Woman
A wise woman lives within you and me.

Sometimes we ignore her...
sometimes her wisdom is drowned out
by noise, busyness and the neediness of others, but she waits, patiently, knowing we'll return for she is the best of all we are.

When You Are Lonely
When you are lonely or sad
 remember that those who love us
 are nearer than we think.
 


Even though we cannot see them
 they are watching over us
 whispering,

‘Grow, dream, believe!

’
We are not alone.

Let Yourself Be Cradled 
Let yourself be cradled in
the arms of those who love you.
We are never too old to be held

We Grow Wiser

We grow wiser and more beautiful
As time and experience
flow through us.

 

We were cute when we were young but now, with wrinkles and a touch of gray we are exquisitely beautiful.

Dance
"Dance!" said the wise old woman.

"Dance from your soul and
wise women everywhere
will dance with you."

Women Friends
The women friends joined hands and danced in a circle and the love and energy from their friendship rose
up to the heavens and formed the moon so that even on the darkest night no woman must walk alone.
