Paintings and Drawings 2015-2016

As I continue to advance in my biological studies at my University, I also continue to delve deeper into the meaning behind each idea, color and brush stroke of every artwork I create. My works stem from a place within - from the one thing in life which is always constant yet beautifully dynamic: which is my faith in Jesus. So as I continue to grow in my paintings, I ask only that you view my work with an open mind and a raw heart to its meaning. Every new unbelievable detail I learn in my studies about the way our God created this embroidered earth to function so perfectly, down to the molecular level, the stronger my faith grows, and the more inspired I am to connect to and attempt to recreate our incredible God's original artwork: nature.
