About the Author

Gina Ferguson is a homeschool graduate, with a degree in English and art, who spent five years teaching art history to high school students. It was through this experience that the Lord laid on her heart the need for an art history curriculum written from a Christian perspective. Gina's prayer is that this work will encourage readers as they see God's hand in history and come to appreciate His artistry more fully. When she is not reading, writing, drawing or teaching, Gina loves traveling and spending time in the great outdoors.
