Mary is a guide to be followed on our way to Christ. She is the star that guides us through stormy seas that threaten to overpower us.

“If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.” St. Bernard of Clairvaux

“This admirably befits the Virgin Mother.. (for) as the ray does not diminish the brightness of the star, so neither did the Child born of her tarnish the beauty of Mary’s virginity” St. Bernard of Clairvaux quoted in Doctor Mellifluus by Pope Pius XII

Mary, Star of the Sea is the patroness of the Catholic mission to seafarers, The Apostleship of the Sea. On July 10, 2010 the Apostleship of the Sea will celebrate Sea Sunday to remember those who live and work at sea.

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.
