Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m a sophomore at the University of Georgia studying Drawing and Painting. I aspire to tell people’s stories through my artwork, help people through my artwork, and be used whatever way God wants to use me in this world!
What inspired you to become a creative activist?
I have always known that I am supposed to make art. Beginning mainly in high school, I began making art concerning world issues including homelessness, childhood poverty, etc. I like to make art with a story behind it- and I find inspiration from the people I meet and the stories I long to share!
What does being a creative activist mean to you?
Being a creative activist means a lot to me because I find that through my art, I can give a voice to people whose voices may not be heard. I feel like by sharing a bit of their stories through my work, I can hopefully change lives- one drawing at a time.
What is one way you have learned to do justice in your everyday life?
In my everyday life, I am truly only a college student. Trying to make good grades, working to make some money, having a social life, being active at church and in clubs- I barely have any time to sleep. Truly, I am humbled to say that in my everyday life, the most powerful and “every day” thing I can do for justice is to pray for the people of the world battling all kinds of things. I pray for hunger, for homelessness, for disease, for freedom.
What is your favorite project, resource, or act:ion that you’ve created or been involved in so far?
I really enjoy working with charcoal, and I think my favorite project I’ve made is of a man from a music video I really enjoy. The video is “I Lift My Hands” by Chris Tomlin, and a good friend of mine (Creed Campbell) recently passed from cancer, and he was a main “character” in the music video.
