Until about ten years ago, I considered myself a nature artist having been motivated by the beauty that has surrounded me throughout my life. Blessed with parents who loved to travel throughout this beautiful country, I was driven to express these experiences on paper and canvas. My subjects were all around me from the west coast where we visited relatives to the rolling hills of Pennsylvania where I lived for thirteen years and every place in between including my home state of Illinois where I have spent most of my life. Landscapes and botanical subjects from all over the country were just waiting for me to paint. Then in 2002, a new opportunity presented itself

I had been doing some liturgical design projects since the late 1990’s, but it wasn’t until 2002 when I was commissioned to paint the Fourteen Stations of the Cross that I began to move into liturgical art. A priest friend who was also a Liturgical Consultant began recommending me for various commissions from designing church accessories such as candle cabinets, statue platforms, an altar, to the painting of murals and the restoration of old religious artifacts. Since the painting of the Fourteen Stations of the Cross in 2002, the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago commissioned me in 2005 to paint a set for their St.Joseph Village Chapel in Chicago. My new focus from nature art to liturgical art has led me to my most recent paintings over the past two years including Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Medjugorje, The Risen Christ, The Nativity and several Jesus and St. Joseph paintings all of which are shown in the following pages and are available on giclee prints and ceramic tile.
