"I create as an artist to exude the glory of my Father; of course, many will ask, "How can you glorify God with a painting and a few colors?" Of which I would say that I can only partake in the calling I feel God has placed on my life and that involves sharing of the Gospel through an artistic lens. This by no means that I paint exact Christian interpretations; it matters more of my "why" behind my work. I try to use bright and airy colors in my impressionism work to exude the beauty and nature of Jesus Christ, at least who He is for me. He is my Savior, my light and guide, my daily grace, and my friend. I pray my work, while impressionistic in nature, portrays the adoration I have of my Lord, Jesus Christ".
