Spirituality has been at the core of my creation process from the time I was little. The idea of God creating the Universe lies at the inner most part of my identity not only as a human, but as a child of God. Art, for me, has been a form of communication, not only of how I feel about spiritual aspects, but a way for me to teach by deconstructing the abstract metaphors found not just in the canonical scriptures, but in the pseudepigrapha and apocrypha. Seeking into the unknown and not so popular has helped me form my own image of what I interpret to be a possible truth, but not the only truth. I hold the possibility of what may be over the absolute of what traditions have left us. Limitlessness, and boundlessness, are key to understanding who and what God is and where they belong, where we belong.
Protennoia Tree of Life
The subject matter in this image is complex, only because of the unfamiliarity of the Nag Hammadi Library and the books it contains. Protennoia Tree of Life combines multiple ideas addressed in the Nag Hammadi in regards to the role of Eve and the relationship with the Mother.

The Doctrine of Christ
In the Essene Gospel of Peace, Christ teaches exactly what you must do to be clean inside and out, how to use the elements of water, air, and sun to purify the body, mind and heart. That we must cast off our clothes and bathe daily in these elements, and eat only food in their natural, uncooked forms.
