I am a Catholic artist. Coming from a Catholic household, I have learned that every virtue stems from love. Therefore, I create work that incorporates the techniques of both surrealism and classical art to visually inform my viewers of the different aspects of love from Catholic lenses. I find it amazing that one word, love, has so many different layers of depth that I believe one painting alone cannot show all at once. I always base my work on spiritual reading. I believe that it is only in reading that I can find almost endless different aspects of the Catholic view of love. Although my main source is the Bible, I also look to other spiritual texts that feed me more and more ideas for my art.
