This body of work stems from personal reflection on the concrete imagery and loaded emotion that is ingrained in many Biblical stories. Although many famous artists (Durer, Dore, Rembrandt, Masaccio etc.) have preceded me in printing and painting Biblical imagery, I believe that the Bible can continue to be interpreted many different ways, both in peoples’ walk with God and in artwork. Thus, in my work, I have chosen to focus on intimacy between the people interacting in each scenario. I believe that this intimacy is created in relationships, and in my art I have selectively chosen particularly salient relationships that describe love and conflict.
