I don't want outside influences to dictate how or why I create, so I've been going back to my roots, to find the depth and meaning I was created to see and bring to life. The ideas and images I see in scripture have been what has moved me most deeply. It only makes sense to make them the foundation of inspiration for all of my life's work. This art is what I was always meant to make. I can think of nothing more beautiful, more meaningful or that has more depth than crafting images to reflect the words of God, in order hopefully to show a little glimpse of the ultimate Artist and the Most Beautiful.
"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
- Psalm 23
