90th Anniversary of the Catholic Worker Movement

May 1, 2023 marks the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Catholic Worker movement. The original Catholic Worker paper from New York published some of my linocuts in their 90th anniversary newspaper, alongside works by Fritz Eichenberg, Ade Bethune and Rita Corbin, and next to an article by Kate Hennessy. I’m very happy to be a part of this.

Lenten Art at Pasadena Mennonite Church

I’m honored to have a series of prints I made in 2013-2014 being used as part of the Lenten services at Pasadena Mennonite Church. I made this series of aerial views of sites of incarceration as a Lenten reflection, a Stations of the Cross that asks us to consider the suffering of human beings in this system. I was inspired to make this after meeting many people whose lives were touched by the jail and prison system, and other forms of violence of many kinds, during times visiting the LA Catholic Worker soup kitchen on Skid Row. Some of the stations reflect particular events that were in the news at the time, and others reflect sites that have been infamous for a long time. The traditional stations of the cross depict the sufferings of Christ during the process of the crucifixion, a deadly interaction with the carceral system. The world is full of many kinds of suffering- ecological, victims of crime and violence, racism and gender-based violence, poverty, interactions with crushing state systems. Lent is a time to reflect and mourn, and think about justice and action.


I found this etching I made in 2015 of “The Annunciation,” and wanted to share it. The Holy Spirit is a rock pigeon, the Virgin Mary is reading. I saw a 15th century icon at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena this weekend on the same theme, also sans Angel Gabriel.

It also made me think about Annunciation House in El Paso, which has been helping migrants there for 40 years. They have been in the news this week as their resources are stretched thin and the numbers of folks needing their help are increasing. You can learn more about them here and here

Geez Magazine Issue 65

I have linocut art and an essay in the current copy of Geez magazine: Issue 65, “Healing Sex,” Summer 2022.

I’m delighted to be in this issue alongside fellow linocut artist and fellow former Los Angeles Catholic Worker Becky McIntyre!

“Geez has taken on the taboo, and goodness knows we need to. We explore sex knowing so many of us carry deep wounds and trauma in our bodies from religious abuse, toxic theology, and cultural violence. We face into and acknowledge that — and yet Geez 65: Healing Sex does not dwell there, but instead aims for healing, empowerment, and delight.”

WILD LIFE Exhibit at Center for the Arts Eagle Rock

I will be taking part in an exhibit at the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock that runs from April 1-30, with a special Earth Day celebration on April 23: “In recognition of Earth Day 2022, join us as the Los Angeles Printmaking Society (LAPS) presents WILD LIFE featuring artists addressing a range of issues facing native wildlife. The exhibition activities will also feature a special Earth Day printmaking workshop and a presentation from CLAW. Los Angeles. CLAW supports local wildlife by the creation and expansion of protected corridors and overpasses for safe passage to the essential connected habitats of our impacted mountain lion population.”
