Creating art is an exhilarating experience when coupled with the motivation behind my art. The One who created me also gives me the desire, ability, and a reason to create. My purpose in painting is to make a difference in the lives of those who view my canvases. If I'm not causing people to think differently, feel new feelings, or be changed by what they've seen, then my work is self serving and of no value. I paint for God's glory, and for the edification of those around me.
