Artist Statement

“This work is inspired by the transformational power of Christ and how we evidence this in the mortal realm in the transformation ability of nature. Nature is a metaphor for the evidence of the unseen spirit at play.
The passion fruit flower, a symbol of Christ’s crucifixion is used as a reference to the promise indicated in Isaiah 43:19, that salvation and forgiveness will no longer be limited to the Jews, but to all mankind. Currently, man needs to look at nature and seek redemption.”
