Artist's Statement

“My current work continues the interest that I have in depicting my perceptions of a person's physical and spiritual life. I wish to represent and portray a mix of Biblical subject matter and religious themes, to create memorials that serve to remind us of the importance of living and the certainty of death. I am increasingly becoming more confident and daring in expressing my Christian faith through my art. That and to touch the emotions of people with my art, is what I strive for.”
