In Her Own Words: Meet Daryl Storey, Winner of Logo Design Contest for Triennial Meeting 2018
I am a retired graphic artist and now do most of the graphics for my parish, St. Margaret's Episcopal Church in Bellevue, Washington. The pay is bad but it's very rewarding! Prior to that I worked in advertising for nearly 30 years.
My inspiration for the logo design was to illustrate the sweeping, swirling breadth of the Holy Spirit, which I hope conveys the thought to "go forth, evangelize." The color symbolizes the fire of Pentecost and the birth of the Holy Spirit, which is what I thought of when I read the theme. I want everyone to be able to know God, so this speaks to me on many levels.
I am also involved in music ministries which I decided to revisit after a 30-year hiatus. I play the guitar, and sing, and love to lead worship. I don't know why I ever stopped (other than a case of severe stage fright, which the Lord seems to have fixed). I play weekly in our praise band at St. Margaret's and am also involved in Fourth Day Ministries (Cursillo, Walk to Emmaus, Kairos Prison Ministries), retreats, weddings/memorials, and more recently, the ECW community. I am so blessed by the gifts God has given me. And when I use them to further His kingdom it is always a beautiful thing.
I have been married for 27 years to a great guy. We have a 24-year old son, a Schipperke dog, and we live in the Microsoft area of Redmond.
Outside of music and graphics, I like to do Zumba and a dance class, managing to get some kind of movement in every day. I also sell women's contemporary clothing on eBay, which I've been doing for 17 years. This allows me to shop without guilt! I love fashion and design but especially love the thrill of the hunt.
