These are my Mary Magdalene paintings, created with great love and joy. To learn more about the following paintings, click on the links under the images.


“Mary Magdalene taught me to surrender to love and find knowledge within my own soul. She showed me that the soul is where love is experienced and that the Infinite Love that is God is the ultimate goal in the journey of peace. Infinite Love, I think, is red and warm and full of light, like the colors of my Magdalenes. Mary Magdalene reminded me of a path to a better existence and, in the words of her own gospel, of the way to becoming ‘fully human.’”
