After a lifetime as teacher, administrator, hospital chaplain, and counselor, I am now fulfilling my heart’s desire to express my creative self though the Arts. My Asian Brush Paintings visually express this quote from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: “For those who know how to see, everything is sacred”. Now, as a Contemplative Artist, I strive to see the essence of reality and portray it through the simple tools of  ink, brush, and rice paper. It is my hope and prayer that my Art will continue to be a source of peace, inspiration, and healing to others. As a member of the Amityville Dominican Sisters/International Order of Preachers since 1956, proceeds from “Contemplative Arts” help support the Dominican Sisters’ Ministry to and with the Poor”.
