Artist / Personal Statement
Photography is fundamentally painting with light. Using the tools of the camera and computer, I craft light and pixels to create worlds that exalt and reflect the master Designer. Your journey through the constructed imagery is an exploration of the gospel of Jesus Christ as told through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. My goal is to encourage believers and non-believers to meditate on the ancient truths of the Scriptures in a personally relevant, contemporary context. My prayer is that my artistic exploration may also help you to know the loving God, the Author of light, in a personal and eternal relationship.
