"The focus of my work is to capture the essence of what I create, whether it’s in a person, an object, or anything you can imagine or envision; I will capture it for you to enjoy for years and years. I come from a family of strong values, and I would describe my faith as a personal relationship with my Lord, Jesus. Christ has given me the strength to provide a level of intensity that pours onto my canvas at each event. Every stroke, every detail I do to the glory of God. If I didn’t believe in what I was doing, you would be able to see it in my work."
