Artist / Personal Statement
Seeing God: Art and Spirituality at the Benedictine Center of St. Paul’s Monastery

Over the centuries, Benedictines have encouraged women and men who use color, form, sound, and word to express the beauty one experiences in the encounter with God’s own creativity.

Their work contributes to keeping us mindful of God’s abiding presence. Seeing God seeks ways to cultivate the sacramental sense that infuses religiously-themed art and to deepen the role of art as a formative part of Christian life and discipleship.
Accomplishments / CV
Our commitments:

• To encourage artists in their gifts to interpret and give form to God’s revelation in human life, nature, and the cosmos.

• To sponsor exhibits that demonstrate how the arts can expand one’s capacity to encounter God.

• To teach the arts as a spiritual discipline so that learning about religious art and engaging in art-making itself one might experience the formative power of God’s creativity.
