Artist Statement

“Influenced by both theology and philosophy, I use the versatility of oil paint to examine the full story of humanity on earth and in eternity. My depictions of people are not portraits, but representations of the beautiful, humorous, disturbing, and mysterious aspects of life. We believe that we know ourselves as human beings, yet our own consciousness baffles us. Looking beyond presuppositions and fear of the unknown, my goal is to spark questions and conversations. Only when we understand ourselves as God’s creation can we truly understand our humanity.”
