My faith is the lens through which I see and engage with the world – a world brimming with flora and fauna. An enduring love of this natural world compels me to explore Scripture, seeking to unearth the essence of the plants and animals contained therein. Whether literally or symbolically present, all uniquely reflect their Creator. I forge a connection between the seemingly disparate viewpoints of natural history and faith, challenging individuals from diverse backgrounds to pool their knowledge and unravel why these biblical biotas are significant. I believe that exchange of ideas, racing as half-formed images through the mind’s eye, is the closest man comes to understanding God. In the realm of that moment, I use bold colors and dynamic, gestural strokes, to create impressionistic sketches of God’s creations.
