Artist / Personal Statement
I create art expressive of spirituality and faith. My sources of inspiration include my faith in God, hymns and sacred writings that ground my faith, and theological reflections and spiritual insights that emerge on the course of my faith journey. Informed by academic degrees in journalism and theology, studies in art and surface design, and experiences as a parish pastor, I employ a variety of digital-design techniques and surface-design effects to effectively execute my design vision.
My work has been displayed in juried solo, group, and invitational exhibitions in Europe, Asia, and North America, where it also resides in corporate, parish, and private collections. Images of my work are frequently published in books, magazines, and journal articles, as well as on websites and in on-line exhibitions. My work has been recognized with the International Religious Art and Architecture Design Award (2015) and the Collaboration of Design + Art Award (2014).
My commission schedule is primarily focused on the creation of work purposed for liturgical use. I also maintain several thematic exhibition collections that I lease to venues throughout the United States. I'm an active member of Christians in the Visual Arts (www.civa.org), Episcopal Church in Visual Arts (www.ecva.org), and Lutheran Arts (www.lutheranarts.org).
