"Renew the Church's friendship with the world of art…Beauty can become a path toward the transcendent, toward the ultimate Mystery, toward God,”
-Pope Benedict XVI
Welcome, it's a joy to have you here,
After having taught for over a decade I now am overjoyed to be able to be a wife and mom first, but always and forever an artist. I'm a Catholic wife, mom, artist, educator and designer, holding a B.S. and M.AE. in Art Education, now staying home with my children. Along with my friend and husband, we are in up to our eyelids in joy and blessings as we raise four little people, keeping us busy and laughing. I can't imagine life without any one of them nor my Catholic faith.
My work specializes in art & design with Christian and Catholic subjects. While maintaining traditional values and integrity towards my themes, my works are created with a fresh approach. Certain pieces can be personalized. I also create custom made commissions as well.
My hope is to create a renewed desire to bring God and His Holy Church back into homes and peoples lives in the form of fresh art, design, services and innovative family and children's items. If our world and Church is to be more fully alive it needs to start in the home with the family. What better way than through beautiful art and resources for todays family.
Thank you for taking the time to visit the site, I look forward to offering you art and design services to help you and your family on its way to knowing God and His Blessed Mother more fully.
Thank you for your interest in my website and shop, I am humbled and deeply grateful! I look forward to sharing with you here.
Abundant blessings & peace,
mary My Mother...
Totally Yours Mary...Totus Tuus. This phrase is not only an expression of piety, or simply an expression of devotion. It is more. During the Second World War, while I was employed as a factory worker, I came to be attracted to Marian devotion. At first, it had seemed to me that I should distance myself a bit from the Marian devotion of my childhood, in order to focus more on Christ. Thanks to Saint Louis of Montfort, I came to understand that true devotion to the Mother of God is actually Christocentric, indeed, it is very profoundly rooted in the Mystery of the Blessed Trinity, and the mysteries of the Incarnation and Redemption”.
— John Paul II in Crossing the Threshold of Hope, Arnoldo Mondadori Editori, 1994
In admiration and honor of Blessed Pope John Paul II and complete surrender to the Blessed Mother Mary, I too have chosen to use this motto as my devotion, my True Devotion, my mission. In November of 2011 I began a journey in which I had no idea of what lay ahead. Committing to St. Louis de Montfort's True Devotion by consecrating myself to Jesus through the Blessed Mother, has forever changed my life and most importantly saved it! For this I will always be Totus Tuus!!!
