Heroic Scale & Minutia

Heroic Scale & Minutia


Over time I have found inspiration in ancient icons and their mandate to “Paint the Glory of God,” as well as the movement and evocative aspects of art and life on the heroic scale, even when concerned with the ‘minutia’ of nature.


My own journey has taken me through landscape, figure, face, and abstraction; but always the form emerges, triumphant, out of apparent chaos.


…spirituality remains at the core of every piece, informing and vitalizing the subject and its emergence.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
