About Ahni

I was born and raised in Deep South Texas. My parents, co pastors at our local church, taught me to love and serve Jesus from a very young age. 


In school I was the quiet one, comfortable hiding behind others, but I knew God saw me and that I was called to live differently than what most young people my age were chasing after.  


After graduating high school, I attended Christ for the Nations in Dallas, TX, where my faith in Christ grew deeper roots. After CFNI I returned home, served in the youth and worship ministry at my church, and received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of Texas Pan American. 


In 2014, I took a job as an art teacher and taught high school and middle school art for eight years. While working as a teacher I continued to serve my church, gave painting workshops at local churches on creating with God, and began a young women's ministry with some of my best friends. 


In December of 2021, at the age of 35 I married the love of my life, Matt. I moved to his town in Sterlington, LA where I now reside and serve at my local church, paint, and teach art at a local art studio.


“In the beginning God created…”

Genesis 1:1


I love how the first verse in the bible introduces God to us as a creator. One of the ways I love to spend time with the Lord is by 

creating. I have learned that as I paint with the Lord I am practicing being sensitive to his voice and I can lean into his direction through each brushstroke. What color is next? What direction should this line go? 

Whether it’s a series or a commission I’m working on, I invite the Lord into what I am creating.


God can speak in creative ways. I pray that people encounter a touch from God through one of my artworks.



I had a long season of being single. I was 34 years old when I met my husband. I lived differently than what this world defines as normal, and at times ridiculed for it.

I am passionate about encouraging young women as they walk through their single season. I have learned that we can encounter the goodness and faithfulness of God in EVERY season and what He has in store is truly is worth the wait! I share more of my heart for single women on my blog!
