Mom - A Journey back to her Craft
Artistry, a mini-documentary series that tells the story of artists finding their way in the world. The goal is to share their thought process, their fears, successes, and goals. In a broader context, it will help continue my learning and yours as we all shape and grow into our craft. My mom is an artist, but she sacrificed her dreams and dictated 25 years of her life to raise my sister and I. Now my mom is on a journey back to perfecting her craft! I am so proud of her and I want her to succeed!
I created this video about my insecurities. My weight seems to be everyone's first impression. This is common for everyone, large or small. Let's be vulnerable and get to know the person beyond the body. We all share some insecurities about ourselves.

Throne of Fire - 4K Time Lapse
Throne of Fire is a visual concept which I derived from Daniel 7:9. Verses 1-8 talk about the various beasts that Daniel sees, one conquering after the other. But in verse 9, it describes a much greater power, "The Ancient of Days". God is called many names in the Bible, but this was my first time reading this name of God. It struck a chord with me and did not leave my thoughts. Verse 9 continues to describe "The Ancient of Days" ... "Whose garment was white as snow" ... "His throne was like the fiery flame". At the time of reading this, I don't know how I could tie in the proper visuals. At this point, I've already photographed a couple of time lapse. As I revisited the images, it hit me right there. Using various time-lapses of clouds as the medium would fill my visual need. So the 5-month journey began, going out almost every evening after work to see if there was an amazing sunset. Out of the many time-lapses I captured, only six made it to my picture lock. I hope you will enjoy and I encourage you to read Daniel 7 and also Matthew 24:30, "...and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
