Philosophy

“I cannot say that I am anything of myself, nor can I make anything of myself; but what God wants me to be, by His grace, I shall be. Trusting Jesus Christ as my Savior has been the most important choice of my life; and everything I do now is for God’s glory.

My goal is to contrast the humanist society around me with art that correlates to Philippians 4:8 ‘Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.’

Wherever I am, and whoever I become, one of my missions in this life is to do my utmost to glorify God through reflecting the beauty of His creation.”
