When I began working as a draftsman in 1970, making the drawings and documents for large engineering projects, I was struck by the geometric beauty of structures that were conceived by people with creative vision. That has changed over the years as that type of design has become more "cookbook" and lost a lot of it's elegance and beauty that shows through as the form was created to be inspiring by the simplicity of it's execution.
What I want to create is sort of an "intersection" of math, science, engineering and beauty that points to a larger theme of how everything in the created world has a purpose and that all those things will be a part of redemption.
Outside of creating, I do the ordinary mundane tasks of the ministry of Center on Just Living and the other affairs of daily life.
About My Faith
Not too much to say - I became a follower of Christ about 33 years ago. Faith has shaped how I live and the understanding of the larger redemption story and relates to any creative activities as they are formed by doing work for God's glory.
Because I am not a "career artist", and am an extreme introvert, I'm puzzled by the difference between art that is an expression of an idea and art that is an interpretation. The work that affects me the most is work that expresses the artist's feelings rather than interprets their view about anything. Seems like some interpretive work (at least to me) is wanting to receive attention rather than pointing to a bigger story.
