Visual creation was a part of my life even before I took my first photography class in 1971. Years later, when my professional mentor helped me to connect my creative processes with my contemplative prayer practice, I experienced a breakthrough. Perceiving my connection with God, waiting, seeing, and working to share what has been revealed describe my creative process. Sacred sites, including natural environments and praying bodies, make my heart sing and my shutter click! Beauty calls; I do my best to respond.
As I work visually, I seek to express the awe, curiosity, hope, insights, and faith that I have experienced and/or that have been given to me. Inspiring viewers to perceive sacred connections that are fresh, deep, and life-giving is what I long and work for.
My images have been published in books, magazines, scholarly and practical journal articles, blogs, websites, promotional materials, and private collections on five continents.
