Years serving my country as an LDS military Chaplain has afforded me the blessing of helping my brothers and sisters work through both trauma and celebration. Coupled with a master’s in divinity and a doctorate centered on PTSD, I learned how powerful art can be in helping people deal with suppressed trauma. After retiring from the Navy in 2017 I began studying art under Del Parson and McGarren Flack, which has opened a new world to me in self-expression and personal healing. When I put on my headphones, grab my brush and newly mixed paints, I easily lose myself in the process of painting, which often feels like a spiritual experience. On each canvas, I try to pull out emotions I’ve personally felt and only work on one small piece at a time until something clicks, and I feel it’s been painted the way it was meant to be. My father stood in front of one of my first paintings and wept. My hope and prayer, is that when others view my work, they will be moved by the same type of emotion.

I feel that having a painting of Christ in our homes or in church helps to bring the spirit of peace to our souls in times of need. I painted this scene as I thought of Christ’s time in Gethsemane as He prepared to take the weight of the world upon His shoulders. This oil painting holds much significance for me, and hopefully for others, too.

“Any great work of art can stop time and your ability to breathe if only for a moment. It can heal a broken soul, comfort the grieving, and move people to change the world. It can either be a glimpse into heaven or a terrifying peek of hell.”
