“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.
“My work is a visual commentary on God’s great promises. We face many difficulties, but grace redeems and overcomes. In His arms we are eternally safe. Using figurative and abstract elements, my drawings and paintings don’t shy away from the realities Christian life: temptation, spiritual attack, internal angst, worry, depression, anxiety. Despite these troubles, we do not need to be pessimistic. These realities do not have the last word, for our lives are hidden in Christ. We are new creations sealed by the Holy Spirit for the Father’s glory, though the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In these greater realities of grace, we live and breathe and have our being.”
