Hello, welcome!

My name is Saskia Kidd. I studied Fine Arts and Art Education in The Netherlands and The United States. I’m passionate about art, and all things sacred. I myself am rooted in Christ, more through personal spiritual experiences throughout my life than through upbringing, tradition or sense of “obligation.” I also deeply value, enjoy and draw inspiration from various faiths and views. I find that more often than not, we have so much in common.

I love to help create what I call sacred spaces: environments and experiences conducive to worship, prayer, reflection, connection, and response. Most of the time I work spontaneously, though usually with a certain theme or concept in mind. I try to be cohesive with the existing space, current message, or liturgy of the season – yet many times I’m simply responding to the circumstances of the world we live in, or however the Spirit moves me. I am interested in the connections between our exterior and interior “sacred spaces” – those of the heart, mind, body and soul. I express myself through photography, decor, graphic design, drawing, painting, writing and music. I love singing. I also work part-time in Interior Design/ Decoration and freelance in Photography.

Though not the main focus on this blog, there is an undeniably big part of my life parenting a child with a chronic auto-immune disease, along with our other two children. I have written one post about it called: “Hanging in There.”

Ora Et Decora means: “Pray and Decorate” (or Enhance, Embellish) – simply my play on the Medieval Latin motto found in Christian Mysticism and the monastic life: “Ora et Labora,” meaning: “Pray and Work” (or Pray and Labor.)

Thanks for stopping by, and blessings to you on your  journey.

Let me know your thoughts, insights or how we can work together.
