In all my work I seek to contribute to the restoration of Christian culture. I try to express the holiness of existence and the dignity of the human person situated in an incarnational universe. Each visual image and each work of prose is an incarnation of a word, a statement of faith. At the same time, it asks the questions: What is most noble and eternal in man? Who is he? Why does he exist? And what is his eternal destiny?
There are more than a hundred articles, interviews, and transcripts of talks available on this site, which can be accessed by selecting the specific category under Writings in the menu on the upper left side of the home page.
There are also four visual art categories for you to explore (see the categories in the Gallery menu on the left side of this page): the Profiled Works gallery usually contains paintings recently completed; these are the only ones available for purchase. However, I regret that I have no paintings available for purchase at this time. The Modern and Byzantine galleries contain images painted during the past forty years, which are no longer available for purchase. In the Recently Sold gallery are images purchased within the past year. Please note that most of the galleries have several pages of “thumbnail” images. In all galleries you may click on the thumbnail for a larger version of each image. Prints are not available for any of the paintings.
If you wish to inquire about purchasing a painting, please write to me by regular post at the address below:

I regret that I am unable to read manuscripts of books, short stories, poetry, or essays, and thank you for your understanding in this regard. Due to a great amount of creative work ahead of me, I am able to send out my (somewhat irregular) newsletter only from time to time, advising you about new publications and paintings or offering random ponderings on faith and culture. If you wish to receive these mailings, simply sign up via the e-mail subscribe box on the left side of this home page.
God bless you always, in our Saviour Jesus.
