About The Artwork

In 2008 I painted icons of seven Roman martyrs Christianity, and seven contemporary women (individuals and representative women from various groups) who had died or suffered otherwise for a cause. Anna Politkovskaya is my favorite of the seven I did. I hope I was true to her attitude, because I never met her. I just remember reading that she had stood up to Putin by making people aware of abuses in Chechnya. When people protested "Why are you writing these terrible things?" she told them "You need to know because these acts are being committed in your name." I show her holding Novaya Gazeta in her right hand, and crumpling Pravda ("Truth" - the official Russian newspaper - in her left). Her halo reads: "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." There are some gold leaf accents worked into the halo.

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, a town with very rich Eastern European ethnicity. I earned an undergraduate in Philosophy from St. Joseph’s College, Rensselaer, Indiana, and have been a member of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd since 1976. After years of working in Good Shepherd programs in Cleveland, Detroit, Columbus and Louisville, earning an MBA at Xavier University, Cincinnati, and certification as a Chemical Dependency Counselor I was granted permission to study art at Bellarmine University in Louisville. Since 1998, I have spent more and more time in a ministry of the arts, with a special interest in the Byzantine style, and more so, in the creation of sacred art featuring women and diverse ethnic groups. My work has included a series of African-American women representing the seven virtues of Kwanzaa, women of the Bible (notably, the women ancestors of Jesus) and historical figures from the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd.
