The Whitworth Nativity


The Nativity

Ink, gouache, and gold ink on Pergamenata. 8"x10". 2018.

In this scene, Mary and Joseph have taken shelter within the overcrowded city of Bethlehem. I tried to put in tiny tethers to the modern world to show just what it means to have a baby in a city that doesn’t want you there.

Whitworth came to my home studio and made a video about the Nativity illumination! They asked great questions and really captured everything I wanted to express with this piece. Thank you, everybody!
