Hi I'm AJ

I'm a big brother, I'm an artist, and I'm a mormon

About Me

First off I'm only about 18 right now. Next, though I was born in Utah and I live in Idaho now I have actually lived in many other places. As a young kid my family moved to Scottsboro Alabama, then moved to Red Wing Minnesota. So I really enjoy the outdoors. I think that art just came as an extent of that. I was five years old and already plastering the fridge with little scribbles of sharks. Now I mostly do portriats but the joy of capturing and creating reality still exists.

Why I am a Mormon

Two years ago I was really struggling with ... a personal issue. After a very particularly hard night I just found myself weeping in the corner of my room, in the dark. I wouldn't say that I was praying I was more of just calling out to God. Crying out for him to help me, to strengthen me. ... I felt comfort just flush through my viens. I could almost feel the Savior put his arms around me. I kept weeping but now it was from joy. I know now that things will be ok. 2 Nephi 1:15 "But behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory, and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of his love."

How I live my faith

I live my faith by how I interact with others. With my experience in portrait painting and caricatures I know that every person is unique and special to our Father in Heaven in they're own way. When seeing people through this is only natural to instantly have a love for them.
