Always painting color (can’t live without it!), I’ve turned to mixed media in order to express the truths with which, God has pierced my heart. Some argue the benefit of words over pictures while others prefer pictures over words. I have too much to say to settle for one. Similarly, mixed media frees me from the confines of just one medium. I use the combination that best suits my expression—luscious brushstrokes, calligraphy, text, drawing, printmaking and beautiful papers.

May the Fire of Your Spirit Burn Within Me

Sometimes I'm fervent and sometimes I'm preoccupied and timid but I long to stay in that white-hot passion that the Holy Spirit burns inside us to serve the Lord wholly. I've built up texture in this piece like that of an ancient wall decorated with crosses. The intensely red Amazon lily represents the fire of the Holy Spirit contained in jars of clay (II Cor. 4:7). The relief printed "tribal" decorations call us to take the truth of Jesus Christ to the peoples.
