What is Marian Typology?

Marian Typology is a continuity from the Old Testament to the New Testament where someone or something from the Old Testament is perfected in the New Testament. Mary foretold  throughout the Old Testament prepares our hearts for her “fiat” and her Son in the New Testament!  Simply put, Marian Typology is the idea that Our Lady is prefigured in the Old Testament.

CATHOLIC CREATIONS

Each original art work is drawn, inked, and digitized to create a high quality product. Moreover every piece is created with the intention to share the Catholic Faith, and to help foster a love for God in the Domestic Church. First my illustrations are created with pencil and ink. Next I add colored pencil. Finally, I will finish up with some more ink if needed!

This all happens before being digitized for print. I use enjoy a variety of mediums, but the majority of my experience is with ink, watercolor, and colored pencil. These are my favorite to work with! We prefer you shop here, but if you would like to read some other reviews check our Etsy Shop.

MARIAN TYPOLOGY INSPIRED ART ‘HANDMADE’ AT HOME

My name is Jenny and I am the owner and creator of the shop and blog Eva to Ave. As a Catholic wife and homeschooling mother, I create each image with love while drawing with my children, listening to them play, or when I have “free” time (nap time!)! It is a great joy to work from home and design pieces that I hope bring glory to God. Since my earliest memories I have been “creating”.

The image of God the Father as the Creator is very special to me. I am not a creator, but a poor imitator of all He has done, and I hope that my simple but heart-felt designs bring you and me closer to Him!

  WHO WE ARE. WHAT WE DO

Eva to Ave INC. is a small family run market place and blog that is intended to evangelize and help our family. Here you will find a variety of Catholic creations including apparel and pintables. Our main products are my original ink and pencil prints with a focus on Catholic art. 

After teaching a course on The Blessed Virgin in Art, I found myself very interested in Marian Typology and how the Lord has shown us from the beginning His plan.  I will be focusing the next collection based on the public domain work Mary Foreshadowed and exploring the types of Mary in the Old Testament. 

 Our family greatly appreciates your support and if you cannot support us financially, please consider praying for us! 

OUR MISSION, OUR FAMILY, AND OUR NAME!

Our Mission is to spread the Good News. Our family is aiming for Heaven. Our name is inspired by the Ave Maris Stella, dedicated to Our Patroness, and Our Mother.

Under this patronage of Mary Star of the Sea it is my hope that I grow in my own faith, and that many are inspired to grow closer to Jesus through Mary.

Marian Typology as the Base of the Blog

HOW EVA TO AVE BECAME OUR NAME

The name Eva to Ave was inspired by the Latin hymn “Ave Maris Stella”, or in English “Star of the Sea”.  The second and third verse states,

Taking that sweet “Ave”
Which from Gabriel came
Peace confirm within us,
Changing Eva’s name.

Break the captives fetters,
Light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling,
Every bliss implore.

– Ave Maris Stella

 

A DESIRE TO BE LIKE MARY!

To transform from Eva to Ave. Change vice to virtue. Turn a no to a yes. Putting faith over fear. Firstly, instead of going my own way and eating the forbidden fruit to be able to say with trust and grace to say “Let it be done unto me according to Thy Word”. Even still, to break the captives fetters, and embrace the Will of the Lord. For us to really know that Our omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, God loves us knows what is best for us! This is not easy, and we struggle, but this is our call, and what a beautiful call it is. To continue to make the pilgrimage in my own heart from being like Eva…to Ave Maria!

 

Thanks for visiting! I hope this website brings joy to your home.

In Christ,  Jenny

Ave Marie Stella, Ora Pro Nobis!

Please note I reserve to right to make prints of any commissions. I will not resell any Catholic art that contains personal information/images.
