Who is like you, Adonai, among the mighty? Who is like you, sublime in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders?
— Exodus 15:11 CJB

Mystele sounds like “Mih-Stehl” and rhymes with “Michele”.  My nickname is “Myste” (Mih-Stee). I’m fine with either name.  I also answer to “Mom”. Yup.

Shhh!!! I have a creative, little secret. I am enamored with the creative process!! Smitten. Bewitched. Transfixed. Painting after painting, I am mesmerized by the artistic excursions that begin with the simple, elemental building blocks we call "marks". The simple act of making a mark, whether with line, color, or collage, helps shine a light on what captivates our hearts and minds, giving voice to our stories. I just can't get enough!!

I abstract my subjects from what may seem like an unruly, dissonant mess of marks, color and texture, but, to me, it's the most fantastic playground of imagination and sight.

And for someone like me who never expected to be an artist, these playgrounds are always ღ wonder works ღ.

  • Self-taught but have not worked in a void; I’ve caught a lot of inspiration from the world around me and the creativity of others

  • Began painting in 2008

  • Acrylic-mixed media

  • I create out of who I am -> My story

Process driven, mark by mark, problem solving...yes, please.




Paintings are really my passion, but, from time to time, I need to stretch my wonder-seeking wings in fresh ways. So, I create other mixed media works such as 3D works, fabric creations, jewelry and journals.


My prayer is that the art that comes out of my life will renew your sense of Wonder in the midst of a world that has so many dark places.

Copy of Open
Wonder [wun-duhr], noun: A deep seated awe arising from any life experience [whether profoundly simple, once-in-a-lifetime thrilling or somewhere inbetween] that causes a person to look beyond the realm of self and press in for a closer look at the “Other” [the Creator and origin of wonder Himself]
— Mystele
This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
— 1 John 4:10 NLT
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.
— Psalms 40:5 NLT
