This series uses the subversion of long-standing Christian narratives to express the dichotomy of the queer-Christian experience. I use Procreate, a digital painting program, to create the works in order to juxtapose the historical appearance with the modern approach. When I work, I reflect upon the experiences I have had as a queer person raised in the Christian faith and the ways those experiences have shaped me. I hope that viewers are able to gain a better understanding of the struggles queer people face in a Christian lead society.
