    Saint Gianna Molla

    $10.00$85.00

    I knew I wanted to paint St. Gianna at least a year before I actually started—partly because she’s a popular modern saint, and partly for the strong pro-life element to her story. As I read more about her life, I discovered a kindred spirit and role model for all women in this modern age. She gave generously of herself through her work as a doctor and volunteer, in her vocation as wife and mother, and ultimately offering up her life for the sake of her unborn child. As someone struggling to balance work and motherhood, she has become a source of inspiration in hard moments, for she is proof that it is possible—by the grace of God—for a modern woman to become a saint.

    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

    $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!

    Joan of Arc

    $10.00$85.00

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

  • Orava

    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.
