Marty Carney

I am an artist wondering at the art of living. My passion for art and creativity has emerged and evolved over the years. I have lived my life so far in the American Midwest. As my aunt once marveled flying into the Midwest after having lived away from this area for a length of time, “The green! The shades of green!” I live within those shades of green unfolding. Within this “heartland,” I find a place to express the landscape of my soul. I find space to stand in the sun, to feel the rain and snow, and to huddle in warm coffee shops with friends through the long and dark winters. For the last fifteen years I’ve lived near Sheboygan on the Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan as an artist and as a pastoral leader in the community of faith, Falls Community Church.  Now living in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin as an artist and spiritual leader at a local community of faith, I continue to deepen my experience of the heartland in a new place. So along with all the Midwestern shades of green, I’m now captivated by the broad space and the hues of blue that unfold from the lakes.
