Some of you may have noticed the Bible verses that I have been putting in my paintings...

I am a Christian and believe that God gave me the desire to be an artist for a reason. If I can encourage one person to open the Bible and look up one passage, then I have reached His goal. It may just save a life, answer a question, or reaffirm ones beliefs. I Praise Him and thank Him for sending His son Jesus to pardon me for my sins. There is no such thing as a good and perfect Christian, we have all sinned and fallen short of His glory. The Bible is full of words of wisdom to help us through our life. I encourage you to open it, study it, and start your relationship with GOD today. If you have any comments or questions please contact me.

I would like to thank all of you who have supported my efforts through the purchase of a piece of my art, and in words of encouragement. I will do my best to create images that may rekindle memories that you may have made while enjoying the creation God has made.
