Artist / Personal Statement
I have a life long love of art; I love to view it, create it and engage others in it. I believe everyone is created in the image of God and therefore everyone possesses the ability to create. I enjoy using my talents to help others express their spirituality through creativity. Creating art is worship; just as singing a hymn is worship. I feel called to create visual art and to express my faith through my artwork.I also am called to facilitate (encourage) the creation and enjoyment of visual art in churches as a means of worship, discipleship, healing and out-reach.
