Visual art is a way for me to bring beauty to those around me. It is an essential form of compassion; just as we need food to fuel our physical bodies, we need beauty to nurture the growth of our souls. Sometimes the growth is cathartic as art helps us to define our pain and sorrow, and then directs us toward the hope of healing our soul’s wounds.
I believe that art is essential to the wellbeing of people; as we create we show the wonder of what it means to be human, to be made in God’s image. Through my painting I seek to reveal the inner beauty that is hidden deep within our souls, that secret place where we all carry God’s sacred fingerprint.
