”I am a visual artist, a scholar of aesthetics, a restorer of sacred art, and a museum professional. My work in the Arts is primarily centered on exploring the interrelationship of visual arts with spirituality.
In my own creative praxis, I work across many disciplines: painting, printmaking, drawing, photography-book publications, commissioned murals for painted walls, and architectural stained-glass. Within these various and diverse mediums, I express a common love and interest in the unifying and transforming qualities of light, color, geometric structure, and the rhythms of Nature, while also striving to communicate a deeper meaning grounded in my own poetic, mystical, and faith experiences.
In support of my work, I have undertaken extensive art-historical research involving the study of religious art and architecture traditions of many of the world’s ancient civilizations. This has included appointments working in many high museums of art and history; graduate academic studies; and international travel tours to many of the world’s greatest ancient temple architecture and natural landscapes.
The unifying goal to all my efforts in the Arts is to express messages of transcendence, interiority, sacredness, order, and communion; ideally communicating something of spiritual value and poetic clarity to the viewer.
Ultimately, I strive to make all my various individual efforts and activities in the Visual Arts, and in my life itself, a true offering to others of visual beauty, radiance, unity, harmony, and peace."
