The "Vatopedi" Mother of God icon , exemplifies the tender, loving nature of Mary, and reminds us of the nurturing we must take on in welcoming others into our churches. To bring others to the church is only the first step. To really grow, we must also make these newcomers feel at home and in community with us and with God.
 
I am inspired daily by the Holy Spirit in my icon writing. Beginning with prayer and meditation, I seek to create images of Christ and Mary, along with many other saints, which will serve as focal points for others in their spiritual lives. Icons provide a wonderful means of drawing others into deeper relationship with God, and providing windows into heaven.
