Professional Biography

I’m Marlia Gallaher — born and raised here in The Great Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee where my husband, Zack Gallaher, and I continue to raise our own two boys, along with four fur-babies (our two dogs, Sam and Marshall, plus our two bunnies, Theo and Athena).

My family and I have attended Freedom Fellowship in White Pine since 2015 where my husband began playing guitar and I eventually joined in vocals with our worship team.

I believe that I was created to create. 

My art journey began early — on my Etch-A-Sketch at the age of four — and though both of my parents encouraged my creativity, it was my dad  who motivated and inspired me the most with him being a skilled carpenter and having a strong creative drive himself. Don’t get me wrong, my mom could draw stick figure cats like no other!

By the age of twelve my artistic abilities were well-known between my friends, classmates, and teachers and I had gained a reputation of the class “doodler”. There were times when I would receive requests from teachers to decorate their classroom doors, friends would ask that I come over after school to teach them how to sketch, and that year even my dad helped our class design and build a float for the school parade. This was also the age when I became saved by Jesus.

Fast forward to September 13th, 2020 — I was baptized at Freedom Fellowship in White Pine by our pastor and family friend, Dustin Wallace.

Now-a-days, if I’m not in the art studio, you can usually find me in a local coffee shop or hiking through the mountain trails...

Unless it’s after 5pm, then you’d probably find me in a blanket burrito on the couch. wink

I am excited to be a part of Freedom Christian Academy, and I look forward to all the adventures that lay ahead!

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace towards me was not in vain.” 

- 1 Corinthians 15:10
