Pope John Paul II said in his letter to artists “The purpose of art is nothing less than the upliftment of the human spirit.” Focusing my work through the lens of my Catholic faith has given me an appreciation for the traditions found in the Church including her influence on architecture. I use Gothic architecture and the Catholic churches from my hometown of Tepatitlan, Jalisco, Mexico as inspiration for my work. Through carving, I attempt to evoke both the corporeal and spiritual worlds. My hope is to contribute something beautiful to society, something that will impact the human heart, drawing us out of ourselves into something greater and higher, something that can fill us with a hunger for truth, goodness and beauty that transcends the mundane.
