"When creating a piece of art, I think first about the movement and emotion of the lines. I dig into how I’m feeling or how I want to share an emotion as I draw.
It doesn’t take long for my faith to intervene and become part of the story. I find it ever so important to share God’s love for women in today’s world of fabricated fantasies and “expectations” of how women are to look or act.
I draw and paint fantastical worlds and imaginary, winged, beautiful women, but their story is one about allowing the light from within, Christ’s love, to shine out of them without barriers or strongholds. I paint how I believe GOD sees His creation.
I want the Lord’s love and protection to be shared with the audience so they feel and understand His presence and joy for them. Much of the fairy fantasy art available to purchase uses dark color palettes and heavy lines to depict their narrative.
To help underline and emote God’s light, I choose to use bright and bold colors, the complementaries of purple and yellow which are soft to the eyes, and always a source of light coming from within or being embraced.
My relationship with Christ has and always will be a very emotional one, and I pour that out into my work for others to see and to experience. Using that moment to transcend what He has given me to give to them through the gift of illustration."
