My artwork has been used in thousands of churches and ministries around the world and has been featured on book covers, CD albums, video games, and more.
Instead of recreating specific Biblical scenes, I tend to focus on the powerful visual imagery contained in Scripture. God paints a picture in our minds through His careful use of words and I attempt to translate some of that onto the canvas.
My prayer is that God’s Word will come alive in your heart as you look at these images. His words are more than text on a page – they are Power to those who believe!
Please feel free to use any of my artwork for personal or ministry use. If you don’t see what you need here, please contact me about your specific project or need.

I began creating images 20+ years ago. My wife and I wanted to furnish our home with Scripture, but it was too expensive and the styles seemed outdated.
Over the years, I have experimented with various techniques, styles, software, and digital tools. Some of those are represented here.
Often I will start with creating and posing a 3D character in Poser and then move into PhotoShop where I layout the image, merge other elements (photos, graphics, etc.) and modify the image. I then take this image into Painter and, using a digital tablet, paint over the image until I get the result I’m looking for. Finally, I move back into PhotoShop to overlay the Scripture onto the image.
Sometimes I have a specific Scripture in mind when I start. Other times I’ll have the idea for the image first and then recognize the Scripture that fits.
Creating art is a form of worship for me. I never feel closer to God than when I’m immersed in the creative process.
I’m thankful for the churches, ministries, and individuals who have embraced this artwork and appreciate all of the gracious feedback I’ve received.
If you have questions about using my artwork, purchasing, collaborating, or anything else, please contact me here. I look forward to speaking with you.
