Throughout the church are a series of windows that depict saints, which are rendered with acid etching on clear glass. The windows were approximately 2' x 6'.
The intent of the design was for the figures to blend in with the exterior view as a reminder that they are a part of our daily world in spirit. The figures were rendered in a manner where the exterior view formed the negative parts of the composition, bringing the exterior and the interior together in one plane. The windows are also seen with reflected light from the exterior for those who pass by the church or those who approach it for worship.
I worked closely with the priest and the committee in the development of the designs

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
