Integrating Art & Poetry
the mending branch
In 2019, Lorenda began integrating her art with her poetry.
_the mending branch_ is a collection of contemporary blank and free verse, traditional poems and excerpts, visual inspirations, and #thoughts. This unique integrated visual-verbal art form shows snippets of the author’s healing journey. In the big picture, it celebrates the desire and ability God has to mend each one of our broken hearts with both truth and tenderness. The creative and poignant expression through dozens of poems and photos offers countless opportunities on which to reflect and meditate. This leather-bound was a limited edition that was hand-signed and numbered by the author.
In addition to the book, Lorenda also included for each recipient her original sketch of a budding branch.
The Wounded Christ
In 2020, Lorenda launched her second art and poetry book.
Tangled Garland Press is offering another limited edition poetry book featuring poetry and imagery by Lorenda Harder in The Wounded Christ.
The Wounded Christ immediately pulls us into a world of reflection and thoughtfulness with its unique integration of words with images. This poet-artist interacts with the reader-viewer with both intuitive expressions and Bible-focused applications. This rich compilation of selected paintings, photos, and poetry reveal Christ’s trauma and our healing, the Spirit’s guidance and our comfort, and the Father’s mercy leading to our celebration of grace.
