Sky Above Me, Earth Below Me, Fire Within Me is a piece I created about perseverance, strength, and confidence. It was a meditation on what it means to be comfortable in my own skin, and the revelation that said comfort doesn't come from the way I see myself as much as it comes from how God sees me. This piece, with it's goofy proportions and my signature bright color and pattern, is a lighthearted expression of how one's short-comings, struggles, and quirks are beautiful in the light of God's redemptive love. It is representative of how I find comfort in who I am, in remembering who I am in Christ- perfect, holy, and blameless, and a reminder that He is making all things new and beautiful. This piece is also a symbol of my prayer for boldness, and to use my gifts as an artist to share my faith, and spread love, hope, and light into the world.

The progression of my latest piece entitled A Renewed Mind. This ink and color pencil drawing was inspired by the part of the book of Ephesians that says "to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness."
