I create many compositions with themes from scripture, theological issues and life experiences. My artistic and spiritual vision intuitively creates without a preconceived notion of the finished product in mind.  I paint with a practice of contemplative prayer to create with courage and capture the moment that frequently has a spiritual message.

“Find a center from which we can embrace all other beings at once and experience meaningful connections with all that exists.”  — Henri Nouwen, Wounded Healer

We are all born into this world.
As a painting is created.

Through life experiences we become broken.
As a collage that is torn.

With God’s grace we are transformed into a new creation.
As a creative composition that is recreated.

In the reassembling of our understanding of an experience.
God as Trinity abides with us like the glue in a collage painting that unites.
