Art & Contemplation will be a series of books containing wise quotes, visual artwork and Bible verses from various artists and authors. Each trio is brief but deep, allowing for space to contemplate. Intended as a guide to come alongside you in your human and creative journey, they can be read like a daily devotional or viewed as an art book. Art & Contemplation offers a way to spark and shape your imagination through beauty, curiosity, reflection, new perspectives and a gracious way to connect with the soul and the divine.

Art & Contemplation is the brainchild of Melissa Browder Beck, an artist, curator & art instructor based in Southern California. She has collaborated with faith-based institutions such as Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Spark and Echo Arts and W83 Ministry Center. Melissa is an adjunct professor at California Baptist University in Riverside. You can view more of her work at
