    Catherine Doherty

    $10.00$85.00

    When I was growing up, we had a little calendar sitting in the kitchen window with a quote from Catherine Doherty for every day of the year. I remember my parents telling me to do the “duty of the moment”. Her small snippets of wisdom blessed my childhood and continue to inspire and challenge me to this day. I was deeply honoured to have the opportunity to paint this extraordinary woman. I highly recommend her autobiography, Fragments of My Life. Her story is fascinating.

  • Saint Francis Xavier

    $10.00$85.00

    Saint Francis Xavier

    $10.00$85.00

    St. Francis Xavier was a Catholic priest and co-founder of the Society of Jesus. He dedicated his life to bringing the gospel to the people of India and Japan.

    The person who commissioned this painting requested that Francis be portrayed holding a small child—and I think that captures the spirit of his mission. Forsaking man-made honour and titles, he went straight to the poor, the sick, the outcast. He would walk through the slums of the city ringing a bell to call the children to catechism. He was utterly tireless in his efforts, sharing the good news of God’s kingdom with courage and love. His passionate evangelism brought around 30,000 souls to Christ.

  • Cecilia’s Song

    Cecilia’s Song

    $10.00$85.00

    St. Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians, but she’s remembered not for her great musical talent, but for the song within her heart that only God could hear. Her faithfulness and steadfast witness—even unto death—won many souls for Christ!

  • St. Therese of Lisieux

    I Choose All

    $10.00$85.00

    I Choose All

    $10.00$85.00

    When Thérese was a child, her older sister Leonie decided that she had outgrown some of her playthings. Before giving them away, she offered them to her younger sisters. Celine politely chose a single toy. When it came to Thérese’s turn, she grabbed the entire basket and proclaimed, “I choose all!”

    This story illustrates well how this future saint approached the spiritual life. She understood that there are many degrees of holiness and she wanted the very highest degree. “My God,” she cried, “I choose all! … ‘I choose all’ that You will!”

    Joan of Arc

    Inspired by the Jeanne d’Arc statue in Paris, I wanted to capture the drama, the hope, and the excitement of Joan’s mission.

  • I Will Not Forget You

    I Will Not Forget You

    $10.00$85.00

    In loving memory of all babies lost to miscarriage or stillbirth.

    Can a woman forget her nursing child, or show no compassion for the child of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands…
    —Isaiah 49:15-16

  • Touched by Light

    $10.00$85.00

    Touched by Light

    $10.00$85.00

    The thick glass in our ensuite throws the pretty ribbons of light that you see in this painting. I must have looked hilarious with my tripod perched in the tub, a desk lamp clamped to the side, and myself crouching between its spindly legs trying to position my hands just right to catch the most amount of light in the few seconds that the sun peeked from behind the clouds. The awkward reference photo paid off though! This painting was a unique and enjoyable challenge.

    Bound

    $10.00$85.00

    I am coming to see that the only way that someone as flawed and weak as I am could possibly get to heaven is if Jesus bends down and picks me up in his arms, and lifts me to the heights of holiness himself. He is the one who will unwrap these ropes of doubt and sin and equip me with the grace to live this ordinary life with extraordinary love.

  • His Bride Waits

    $10.00$45.00

    His Bride Waits

    $10.00$45.00

    In the early days, women didn’t have charts and apps to track their fertility, but would have known the timing of their cycles by the phases of the moon. In that first month after Gabriel’s visit, Mary would not have felt too different than she had before. It would be months before she would show, and even longer before she would feel Jesus’ little flutters. But looking out at the face of a new moon, she would have known in a very concrete way that what the angel said was true. How her heart must have thrilled with joy!

  • Orava

    $20.00$45.00

    Orava

    $20.00$45.00

    This is the castle where my great great grandmother on my mother’s side was raised. According to the story, she was knocked up by the gardener and disinherited. She moved to Canada where she worked as a hat maker to provide for herself and her infant son. She eventually married and raised a family. When she passed away her husband remarried, and his jealous new wife burned all of her things, including journals, clothes, and photographs—which is too bad, because those would have been super cool to look through. This castle, however, still stands as a historic landmark in Slovakia.

    It is a dream of mine to visit there someday and experience in person this beautiful remnant of my family history.
