Of the world's 6,500 people groups, 2,500 are still unreached. New Tribes Mission helps local churches train, coordinate and send missionaries to these tribes. I met with Jack Crabtree a few months ago, and he shared his heart for Papua New Guinea and the unreached nations. I see he and his family are trying to be faithful by moving there soon and they are in the p[...]
Sometimes someone points out to me that I am the best artist they have ever seen. But, I know for a fact that I am pretty normal when it comes to my craft. Craft, as in skill level and how well I execute my ideas. I realize that I could obviously be a lot better in my art execution. I would say I don't understand color theory as well as I could and my figurative work [...]
“In large measure, becoming an artist consists of learning to accept yourself, which makes your work personal, and in following your voice, which makes your work distinctive.” I accept that I am a flawed human being, but have faith that one day I will be reconciled. As an artist I hope to help people see themselves they way God sees them. I desire to be used as on[...]

Jesus is wo[...]
This week I am getting ready to do some live paintings at this years Winterchill for New Heights Students. Something that I will try to fast on and pray on. Please spend this week in prayer for the students and their precious lives. You have to be the altar before you can be the ambassador.

Yet poets, storytellers, writers and painters have historically played an essential role in activism communication of Gods heart for the poor. Our God is a creative God, and by allowing our senses, our imaginations, our minds and bodies to fulfill their God-given potential fo[...]
We all learn at a young age the perils of being perceived as different. We learn that others have the power to single out, to ridicule, to turn away from and mark the one who is different. Choose your own memories, but one way or another we've all felt the hurt of the little boy who wanted to write poems, or the little girl who tried to join the sandlot ball game. As [...]
LOTS OF WONDERFUL THINGS HAVE BEEN GOING ON THE PAST FEW MONTHS! HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT ARE ON MY PLATE: 1. I WAS RECENTLY ASKED TO BE A PART OF ILLUSTRATING A CHILDRENS BOOK THAT DEALS WITH ABUSE AND TRAUMA. ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN SLOW MOVING, I FEEL THAT THE DIALOG BETWEEN THE CHARACTER AND GOD CAN BRING HEALING TO OTHERS. 2. I AM WORKING ON A BODY OF WOR[...]
