The original steeple on this church was damaged in the hurricane of 1938 and was replaced with this structure. This is where I was baptized, made my First Communion, Confirmation, and was married. I went to school right behind it. This is a view from a point of view that looks so different because as a youngster those trees were either not there or too small to obscure the view.after-the-hurricane-j-web

Approaching the main entrance of the church is wide door with a stained glass transom window above it that  reads “Open wide the doors to Christ.”

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
