Christian art is sacred art which uses themes and imagery from Christianity. While working in the Christian Art Realm I have created Sculptures, Sets, and Performance Paintings all for the worship of God. These works of art are meant to help point to Jesus Christ and the Power of his message.

The Gospel Is a short video that I produced in 2014 for C4 Church Easter Weekend. I first began to develop the ideaof the cross in a painting I did 2011. I had a vision of the whole sculpture for about 1 month in 2013 and was based on the scripture from John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
I had this idea of everything and everyone being drawn towards the cross. The cross was made up of 21 different parts that were all initially based on general sins that we all must submit to christ before we become saved. The idea is that as we become christians are old self is destroyed and the Holy Spirit gives us all Gifts of the Spirit. We do not all received the same gifts but as a church the whole body is givien different gifts to help it run. Like wheels in a cog we are all being drawn into Christ and as we mature we become more like him.

The C4 Easter Triptych from 2015 was created in collaboration with stage design and sermon series ideas for the 2015 Easter services at C4 Church. The Three Painting/Videos were entitled "Hosanna" for Palm Sunday, "It is Finished" for Good Friday and "He is Risen" for Easter Sunday.
