ABOUT THE ARTIST

Artist Statement

Being in nature gives us a deep healing tranquility, a true sense of hope and a powerful, spiritual renewal. Yet, this natural experience is a complex mystery seen only through colors, textures, shadows, reflections, flowers, leaves, and tiny details. In my work I explore these perceptions of nature.

 

Immersing myself in this mystery, I paint mindfully and follow where the marks and colors lead me, listening to my intuition, highlighting the interesting and building on what emerges. My paintings unfold on their own as I explore the hidden, abstract features of nature.

 

These expressions send positive energy into the world, sharing Mother Nature’s love, light, peace and hope. I hope that my work brightens someone’s day, elevates and lightens the energy of a space or simply gives someone a chance to take moment to pause and breathe.

 

Artist Résumé

After 25 years in the graphic design, I have learned directing, designing and evaluating visual work, working with color, composition, line, shape and texture.

 

I grew up as a member of a large family of working artists with generations of painters. My love for art became a study of art history and a desire to visit museums around the world.

 

Now, my life experiences, my family’s background in art, my graphic design experience and my knowledge of art history converge in my own work, allowing me to capture my point of view and to share my voice.

ABOUT THE ART MINISTRY

The Art Ministry is about providing emerging artists a venue to showcase their work through monthly exhibits in our gallery. Over the years, we have exhibited many parishioners work including painting, photography and mixed media, as well as work by many other local artists. God’s bounty of creation is shared through these diverse and changing exhibits that also include art from Emmaus House and Holy Comforter, art related to the church calendar and visual supports for Adult Education programs. In the case of diocesan groups, they benefit by receiving 100% of any sales. By exhibiting their creative work, other artists receive more exposure and opportunity for sales. Our parish benefits by having interesting work that enhances our space and by retaining 25% of any sales.


The work of the ministry includes:

  • finding and scheduling the artists

  • installing their work in our gallery

  • introducing the artist through articles in The Epiphany Star

  • accounting of sales.

 

At the end of each calendar year, annual profits are distributed toward needs (mostly with a visual component) in the parish as determined by the committee and the Rector. In the past Art Ministry profits have gone to Vacation Bible School, Outreach, new vestments for our clergy and a wireless microphone system for the church.
