St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church
St. Louise de Marillac Chapel Richboro, Pennsylvania
I served as a design consultant for a new Parish Center building project, which included a daily mass chapel. In addition to consluting on furnishings, paint colors and flooring selections, I designed the altar and ambo, created by cabinetmaker Russ George, as well as 17 stained glass windows. I personally fabricated the five stained glass windows above the altar. The remainder were fabricated and all were installed by Scintilla Architectural Glass of Doylestown, PA.
St. Raymond of Penafort Catholic Church
This thriving, vibrant community of people of varying ethnicities wanted to bring imagery into their traditional church building that would reflect the changing demographic of the area and speak to the hearts of its community. The two 6' x 9' mural paintings that I completed for the sanctuary remind viewers that God calls people of all colors and walks of life to follow Him to holiness.
Hope Flourishes is a collage of saintly role models, centered around a figure of Our Lady of Kebeho and a descending Holy Spirit dove. Other figures include St. Martin of Porres, St. Katherine Drexel, Fr. Augustus Tolton, St. Josephine Bahkita, Mother Mary Lange, St. Charles Llwanga, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Augustine of Hippo and Pierre Toussant.
The second painting, Jesus & the Children, is based on scripture from the gospel of Matthew 18:4, where Jesus tells his disciples, "Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." I used a number of models from the parish, including children from the parish school, in composing this scene near the Sea of Galilee at Capernaum.
LaSalle College High School
St. Mary Chapel Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania
This boys preparatory high school, run by the Christian Brothers, sought stained glass to enhance a new mass chapel addition to the building. I designed a wall of contemporary-styled stained glass, retaining enough transparency to see the courtyard garden area beyond. My design focused on three themes of the school: Faith, Community and Service.
