According to the Gospel in John 18:36, Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place." I am a servant of the Lord, so I abide in Him, as He in me (John 15:4). Although I sometimes fall short and know I am nothing without Him, He never fails me with His unconditional love. Therefore, even though I do not deserve them, He has bestowed me with abundant blessings. Amongst these blessings is a place on Earth which I consider a taste of His Heavenly Kingdom… my art studio.

That is why I thrive in having my artwork and writings glorify Him, as well as bless others, regardless of their faith or believes.
The latter is in response to His two greatest commandments, which are to Love Him above everything and to love my neighbors as myself (Mark (12:30-31).
