Guests Artist: Bemeby Yocum

Beauty, whimsy and faith are a few words that drive artist Bemby Yocum’s work. Bemby seeks inspiration from the world around her, the way a branch crosses the sky, the way the fields roll into the clouds and from each of the creatures they shelter. Over-arching all of these is her fierce fascination with and love of color.
Bemby enjoys all seasons, but winter is by far her favorite season, the more snow the happier she is! She loves creating pieces that can be displayed and enjoyed all through the Christmas and winter season. Bemby often incorporates her faith into her work and desires that it would encourage you to count your blessings and bring you joy. Her sincere hope is that her work will help you embrace the gentle beauty of this season and that you will recognize the blessings that surround you every day.
You won't want to miss Bemby's unique nativities! She made one for Laurie and me many years ago and we bring it out every Christmas. Her seasonal palette-board signs make terrific and very affordable gifts too. These will all be available at Counting Your Blessings.
