Sybil MacBeth is a doodler, dancer, and former community college math professor. She is the 2010-2011 Varnell Artist-in-Residence for Memphis Theological Seminary.
During 2009 Sybil wrote a daily Prayer Blog for Rick Warren's website, the Purpose Driven Connection. Her new blog, "The Praying in Color Blog" includes meditations, reflections and ideas about Praying in Color.
Sybil is a confessed non-artist and cannot draw a cat. Years ago a friend put a pen and colored markers in her hand and gave her permission to make improvisational drawings. Making abstract, sometimes even ugly drawings, has given her many hours of pleasure and relaxation. The prayer practice Praying in Color was born when her need to invite her body into intercessory prayer intersected with her love of color and doodling.
Sybil is the mother of two adult sons. She lives in Memphis, Tennesee with her husband who is an Episcopal Priest.
