God is not “A” being but BEi-ng itself.

My experience with the organized Church is a challenge and a testing ground, not always validating and not always encouraging but it has a valued place in my heart.

Artist / Personal Statement
How do Artists transform ideas into our work?
The question is, how can the work transform me into an idea. Iconographers are always trying to paint what we cannot see. Iconographers live in a twisted dimension: as you paint you theoretically become the image. Internally iconographers believe “beauty will save the world”, the beauty of humankind and our potential to see the divine in all things.
Accomplishments / CV
For 20 years I made money, it was a job and a service. I messed around in plenty of mediums and treated clients honestly. I gave them what I thought they wanted as best and creatively as I could. I said yes to everything and every medium, murals, weaving, furniture, etc. At the age of 40, I was invited to an icon writing workshop with an orthodox priest. That first icon encounter swept me up like a wave. From then on, I was driven to reproduce these ancient images.

Old Wine Skins burst with New Wine

Posted on June 25, 2019 at 5:46pm 2 Comments

When Jesus was walking around the Mediterranean landscape the social conditions were not all that different than today. Societies struggled with changing family and gender roles, sexual controversy, local resistance to unprecedented political power; tyranny and prejudice were rampant. Christianity was a budding cult, unifying varied beliefs and behaviors under one theology of shared love. Christians learned Old Wine Skins burst…

I appreciate your comments and am happy to be a friend.  (I am very guilty of not spending as much time on the CIVA site as is ideal.)  I enjoyed seeing your lovely work and your "silent meditative" comments regards aspects of working are also true for me!! You may also like the work of Heidi Petersen, a friend of mine. May God bless you.
