Artist bio

I found my love for art when I was young but lost touch because of school and sports. But it came back full circle during the winter of my freshman year where I picked up painting first as a hobby, which soon turned into a dream of mine to change the world with my art. It’s funny how God has crept into my art work subconsciously and is becoming even bigger in my life right now. In these 2 pieces, struggle with the inner self and outer forces specifically relates to Ephesians because there is so much out there to be tempted into, but to find your stronghold in God and to go to Him with your doubts, worries, and troubles is where you find true strength. In my piece, “something so familiar”, where the devil is creeping towards the cross, it is not only representing Jesus, but how we all have to carry our crosses with us but it’s so easy not to. I don’t see myself as the devil, nor do I want the viewers to, but to see brokenness in humanity in which carrying ones cross and still trying to walk like God is honorable.


Lonely Circle



Artist Statement

Eventually, and hopefully, we are able to nurture someone. With this, comes the inevitable circumstance of running out of time with them. “Lonely Circle” shows 3 characters, all aged differently, but the same person on a linear timespan. The feeling of being alone while present in others company speaks volumes to mental health and the feeling of unworthiness.

How it fits into contest

In the making new of things, and for the sake of “cleaning house”, God prepares us in ways that aren’t conducive to our plans for our lives. We may lose friendships, partners, dreams and other things in order to prepare us for what’s ahead. In the midst of this, we don’t see the “God” in these movements because so much of our comfort is in what was there. We start to see that the circle we have; aging, lonely, and common, are the only beings we begin to know. We might find loneliness in the groups we belonged to as we feel the tugging in our Spirit.
