Visual Arts

“Using abstract form, color, and texture I try to capture the holy moments found in everyday life. I most often work in oil – occasionally in encaustic, watercolor, or even sculpt in clay or stone.

If we are indeed made in the image of the one who created everything, then creating is an elemental part of what we are meant to do. I believe creating art connects us to our elemental human identity. Painting is a joyful experience for me, whether the inspiration for a particular piece is a happy time or a difficult situation. I hope my art will evoke joy in you, too.

Most importantly, I’m a husband and father. I am also a retired united methodist pastor, a former graphic designer, and now, a joyful artist.”
