”I am a visual artist, scholar of aesthetics, 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 my common love and interest in the unifying and transforming qualities of light, color, geometric structure, and the rhythms of Nature, while striving to communicate a deeper meaning grounded in my own mystical, poetic and faith experiences.
In developing my practice, I have undertaken extensive art-historical research involving the study of sacred and religious art traditions of the world’s ancient civilizations. This has included appointments working in many high museums of art and history, graduate academic work, and international travel tours to many of the world’s greatest landscapes and ancient temple architecture for creative inspiration and documentation.
These powerful experiences of landscape, history, and culture in turn have informed my own artistic visual language in the studio.
My goal for my artworks is that they may express messages of transcendence, interiority, sacredness, order, communion, and ideally communicate something of spiritual value and clarity to the viewer. Ultimately, I strive to make all my various works and activities in the Arts, and in my life itself, a true artistic offering to others of visual beauty, radiance, unity, harmony, and peace."
