Description

“Daughter of a Christian Algonquin woman captured by Iroquois and married to a non-Christian Mohawk chief. Orphaned during a smallpox epidemic, which left her with a scarred face and impaired eyesight. Converted and baptized in 1676 by Father Jacques de Lamberville, a Jesuit missionary. Shunned and abused by relatives for her faith. Escaped through 200 miles of wilderness to the Christian Native American village of Sault-Sainte-Marie. Took a vow of chastity in 1679. Known for spirituality and austere lifestyle. Miracle worker. Her grave became a pilgrimage site and place of miracles for Christian Native Americans and French colonists. First Native American proposed for canonization, her cause was started in 1884 under Pope Leo XIII. The Tekakwitha Conference, an international association of Native American Catholics and those in ministry with them, was named for her.” from http://catholicsaints.info

The “Lily of the Mohawks” Blessed Kateri’s virginity is represented by the lilies that are her attribute in art. Within her halo, feathers are fanned into a circle, a Native American symbol of eternity.

Art should serve a purpose, it should serve the people of a community, and above all, it should be beautiful. The idea of art for art’s sake is a relatively modern idea. Throughout the 40,000 years (give or take) of human history, with the exception of the last 150 years, art has served the people.

I believe that all the gifts God gives to us are to be used to bring people back to Him, and art is no exception.

The particular expression of the gifts God has given me has led me to draw on the rich cultural tradition of Christian religious and sacred art, reinterpreting those images for a contemporary audience. It is also important that the imagery stay true to the Magisterial teachings of the Church, teachings founded on those ancient traditions. I pray that, through my art, people may feel connected to the invisible world, the world of the sacred, the world of the divine, and find their way back to the loving God who created us to be with Him always.
