* can't download the app, my phones too old ... app not available on pc Artist bio: The desire to create has always been strong in me, but it was not until I felt at the end of myself that I emerged as an artist. I am finally uncovering a part of what God wants for me.





Artist Statement

During a time of prayer and fasting partly for my art, I felt the Lord ask me to paint a self-portrait. After completing it I waited to name it. It was only a month or two after, when the #metoo movement emerged, that I knew how I had to name it.

How it fits into contest

When we think of rape is often seen for its devastating effects, and rightly so. However, what is portrayed here is a veteran warrior. It is an overcoming, a redemption, a sober victory gained through the Spirit. It is a recognition of God-given worth and beauty. It is the fight to win the war in my mind and a resolve to fully overcome the shadows of my past.


I am the sole artist and am the photographer of the reference photo.
