Artist Statement


Throughout my life, I have sought freedom and peace, which I found in art and the gospel of Jesus Christ. As an artist and pastor, I paint the beauty of God's creation through a renewed perspective.


My artwork often features small animals, butterflies, fruits, flowers, and water droplets - all of which I find in nature. While I sometimes paint from direct observation, I typically work from photographs that I’ve taken myself. The abstract elements in my work come from the joy and peace I find in the love and grace of God.


Most of my paintings are composed of two parts – the factual and the abstract – because I deeply perceive both the tangible world and the spiritual realm. I aim to convey God’s love and grace through my artwork. I hope you discover the glory of God and the feelings of love, freedom, peace, and joy that can help heal and restore your mind.
