My Little Bio

Genesis
My initial entrance into the art world was through the lens of an editorial and graphic Illustrator. These early experiences helped me to focus my creative mind and sharpen my technical skills. Early in my career a series of life experiences led to what can best be described as a spiritual awakening. This resulted in me following a spiritual path which equipped me with formal theological training. My interests and experiences since that time have pushed me to focus upon the intersections between art and spirituality through the creation of images that communicate an illustrative flair.

Revelation
My present creations reflect my efforts to explore the connections between artistic creation, aesthetic experience, and spirituality. Thus all of my creative work is grounded within my experience as an illustrator, my theological training, and ongoing spiritual practice. All of my visual works are birthed from a deep understanding of the myriad ways that the spiritual and aesthetic intersect. These spiritual insights are often gained through prayer, meditation, or readings and research into various theological and philosophical texts. Each piece is based upon in-depth research and visualizations which are birthed into material form through the use of color, line, and symbol. Many of my creations are attempts to convey complex theological concepts or my own spiritual insights through provocative visual form. My hope is that they will entice you to think, feel, pray, or contemplate the many ways in which Spirit permeates our world.
