As a conscious and responsible artist, it has been my calling to contribute to religious and cultural images as testimony to spiritual and multi-cultural diversity. At the same time, my work strives to develop a new expression for sacred spaces that represents ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity by way of a contemporary style that honors the traditions of our ancestors, as well as creating works of art that represent our own time and place. It is my hope, that through these works of art, there will be a renewed understanding of faith and culture.
