"These paintings represent my interpretation of the mission of St. Ignatius Loyola. They incorporate all I know and feel about my life as a Catholic and as an artist. The process of creating this body of work has taken me almost three years in which I have been continuously supported by the Xavier University Community. My research for the exhibition included completing the Spiritual Exercises with Darrell Burns, S.J. and attending the 2008 Ignatian Pilgrimage led by Tom Landy, Director of the Center for Religion, Ethics, and Culture at Holy Cross University."
