“Most of the time I’m not actively looking for a subject – it finds me.  I get ideas from song lyrics, books, movies, sermons… even clipart collections.  It could be anything.”

“Since I’ve started college, I think the Holy Spirit has been showing me what He wants me to share through my assignments.  I usually ask Him if there’s something specific He’d like me to share, especially when given difficult prompts.”

“I definitely feel that my relationship with Christ has made me a better artist.  I’ve noticed that my artistic skills have improved greatly since He told me to go to college in 2010, and my walk with Him has deepened greatly.”

“Do I believe that art has the power to change lives?  Absolutely!!  I love to look at Chinese and Japanese ink landscapes and get lost in the scenery.  It’s very peaceful, and it allows my mind to relax and think. I hope that some of my pieces might have the same effect.  Plus, I’ve used art to cope with stress (painting, cross-stitching, etc.).”

“My advice to other Christian artists is to always talk with God about what He wants you to do.  I’ve experienced a lot of negativity for my faith and incorporating it into my work, and it can be very disheartening.  I’ve decided for myself to limit my exposure to negativity regarding my Christian walk and how I share my testimony with my art.”
