I’m pleased to have my textile art featured in a solo exhibition in the Gallery of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 100 West 86th Street in Indianapolis. The exhibition, a sort of abbreviated visual autobiography of my art practice, continues through the end of October.

A “Meet the Artist” event is scheduled for Sunday, October 24, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. During this time, enter Door #1 into the Narthex, look straight ahead, and see the third-floor Gallery. Take the staircase on the left or continue past the steps and pictures of the clergy, then turn right, take the elevator to Floor 3, and walk down six steps into the Gallery. I look forward to sharing my work with you.


Monday through Friday, enter through Door #6, turn right, go down the hallway. When you reach the Narthex, look up to your left and see the third-floor Gallery. Take the staircase on the left or continue past the steps and pictures of the clergy, then turn right, take the elevator to Floor 3, and walk down six steps into the Gallery. During the week, it’s best to call ahead to be sure the space is accessible (317-846-3404).

The St. Luke congregation recently acquired my three-dimensional, wooden Tree of Life sculpture, which they are preparing to install in their newly renovated Prayer Chapel.


The year 2020 was like no other. We grieved the illness and deaths attributed to the COVID-19 virus, confronted painful reminders of systemic racism, encountered the effects of climate change in newly urgent ways, felt the impact of cyber warfare, and faced exploding political tensions in our nation and around the glove. And yet, in the midst of it all, member artists of the Episcopal Church & Visual Arts turned to their art and their faith to find hope amidst the darkness.


In the Silence of Our Hearts celebrates the enduring impulse to create works of beauty, even in times of difficulty, challenge, and isolation. Curated by Joy Jennings, ECVA President and Exhibitions Director, this virtual exhibition includes 66 submissions by 30 ECVA artists.


I was pleased to have two works from my Lamentations collection selected for inclusion in the exhibition and to have had the opportunity to discuss my work during the October 2 online opening reception. View the exhibition.



I recently completed the first of several liturgical design commissions for First Presbyterian Church in Flint, Michigan. This digital Tree of Life design, formatted for paraments, vestments, and banners, is purposed for use during the "green" seasons after Epiphany and after Pentecost. Gifted sewists within the congregation are now using the printed fabrics to create textile art to enrich their beautiful worship space.

View the design setting and applications. 


St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Norfolk, Virginia, recently acquired print-on-demand fabrics for creating my Water Color banner collection. I’m confident this collection will be a lovely addition to the congregation’s worship space. View my other banner collections.

I'm delighted that the Center for Church Music, located at Concordia University in Chicago, has expanded its portfolio to include visual liturgical arts, and I’m pleased to be involved in helping that to happen:

The Center’s newest offering, the $1,000 William Wolfram Student Award in Liturgical Art, is now available to undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in Lutheran colleges, universities, and seminaries located in the United States. Please help share this information and encourage eligible students to apply.

The Center's website features a series of interviews I'm doing with Lutheran liturgical artists. Watch the website for links to upcoming interviews with John Hrenov and Scott Parsons.


The Center's website features links to my seasonal collections of liturgical visuals that I make available in a variety of editable formats as a GIFT to enrich the worship and ministries of God's church. I invite you to make use of these resources and to share them with others by forwarding this post or by inviting people to subscribe to my seasonal e-newsletters. Published about four times a year, the newsletters are the best way to be alerted to the availability of each new collection.

Zoom! Zoom! Zoom!

On January 21, I had the privilege of making a presentation via Zoom to members of the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists about how my art and practice have evolved over the past two decades. 

On August 26, I was pleased to make a presentation about my liturgical commission practice via Zoom to members of the Surface Design Association's Indiana Chapter. View the presentation.

During the month of December, I'll be facilitating an online Advent Retreat based on the art and writings of Jan Richardson in her amazing book Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas. The retreat, which will be offered via ZOOM, is a Faith Formation ministry of St. Christopher's Episcopal Church.
