We will recover our sense of wonder and our sense of the sacred only if we appreciate the universe beyond ourselves as a revelatory experience of that numinous presence whence all things come.
-Thomas Berry

My art work is rooted in The New Story of Creation, the stunning story of the evolutionary Universe as it is presented by cultural historian Thomas Berry and others. Earth’s beauty as the primary revelation of God inspires my art work; the loss of this beauty throughout the whole community of life on our home planet fires in me the desire for my art, in some way, to serve Earth’s urgent need for healing and to participate in the deepening global realization that contemplation of the sacred Universe leads us to the “numinous presence whence all things come.” Here we discover how to respond to Earth’s beauty, and to its cries. Within this New Story, the smaller stories of ordinary experience are told, offering me imagery for other art works: crows in snow, an old woman with failing memory gathering a bouquet of autumn leaves, a child balancing herself on a fence, the wonders of the night sky.
