Rev. Katie Jo Suddaby travels throughout the United States as an artist, speaker, and pastor. Ordained with the American Baptist Churches, USA, she speaks and counsels from a deep love for people and a child-like fascination with God. Pastor Suddaby is one of just a few western artists who make sand mandalas. Using the traditional Tibetan style, she incorporates her own designs to create one-of-a-kind temporary works of art. Her art is her tool for helping audiences of all ages embrace impermanence and connect with the Spirit.
