art in the image


– a ministry of creative arts!

the foundation of Art in the Image is a theology of creativity. we make art and create, which is what God does, so by being art-makers we reach out to the divine. In creating- we live out our creation in the image of the God, or imago dei.

the focus of Art in the Image is to create spiritual experience and interpersonal engagement through art-making in worship situations, for spiritual discernment and as a model of pastoral care.

there are 3 ways to engage Art in the Image:

i am a folk artist working at the intersection of art-making for social change and community engagement. some of my personal art is on this site as well, so feel free to reach out about commissioning a piece of art, or scheduling a photography session or graphic recording for your next important meeting.
