Minerva b&w_edited_edited.jpg


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.
