Welcome to our website

We are delighted that you are here.

Rosean and Laurie are followers of Christ who value reason, prayer, tradition, education, and the study of scripture.  We are each very active in a church community;  Laurie as an Episcopalian lay leader and Rosean as a deacon in the Ecumenical Catholic Communion.

Spiritual Art is a creative outpouring which is the response to a contemplative engagement with God. 

  • Laurie has been a religious iconographer for 20 years.  She leads workshops and groups focusing on contemplation, dreamwork, creating a spiritual autobiography, and contemplative creativity.  In April of 2017, she published her novel, Loving the Six-toed Jesus. 
  • Deacon Rosean, who has cultivated her devotion to Mary, Mother of God, since she was a child, sculpts tender images of the Blessed Mother in clay.

Prayer is living with openness to God.  Our life becomes a prayer, and our prayer becomes our life as we begin to live with this openness as the core posture of our hearts.                  — David Benner, Opening to God, Lectio Divina and Life as Prayer
