"I believe that art shapes culture and, as a Jesus follower, I am called to use my gifts in a way that glorifies, honors, and reflects my Maker so that He might draw others into His story. Art should portray beauty, spark dialogue, inspire, engage, and connect with the audience in a way that builds and encourages others."
