I love Creating fine art through the One who created Creativity. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” God created everything including people and gave us the ability to be creative! I love to paint plants, animals, sea creatures and all the things in nature and through that I always find a deep appreciation and amazement for the beautiful things in this world. To me painting and drawing is a place of worship. It is a time where I find inspiration and communion with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Inspiration may simply be the beauty found in the subject matter. Other times there may be a deeper meaning or story behind the work. I believe that God speaks through it all. I love it when the ideas come to life through my paintings and drawings.
