Ahwatukee Foothills resident Lori Worachek has always painted for fun and to relax, but now she’s selling her pieces, hoping her favorite form of worship can inspire others.

Worachek is a Christian painter, but her paintings are meant to inspire even nonbelievers. She blends bright colors and adds inspirational quotes from her favorite Scriptures or songs.

“God speaks to me through music and art,” she said. “When I am listening to the music, so much passion builds up that the only way to get it out is to paint. Like music, I feel art is a very powerful force that can point us to God’s love and grace.

“The world is a crazy place. It is filled with a lot of beautiful things and a lot of painful things. I think anything we can do to keep God’s love and mercy in focus will only help us keep fighting the good fight.”

Worachek, a mother of two, said the past couple of years she’s been inspired to paint more and more. Recently her family decided to sponsor a child through Food for the Hungry, and Worachek decided selling her art could benefit the organization as well as her family. Ten percent of proceeds from selling her art will go directly to Food for the Hungry, an organization that provides emergency relief and long-term development programs in more than 20 countries.

Worachek’s paintings are available for sale at Adelaide Boutique in Ahwatukee, 4910 E. Chandler Blvd., Suite 104, and on Etsy under LucyTreeDesigns. She can also be found on Facebook and Pinterest under LucyTreeDesigns.
