For more than two decades, my art practice was focused on the creation of commissioned projects for use in worship settings. I savored these experiences to work with congregations, regional judicatories, and denominational bodies, and I am grateful for these manifold opportunities to engage the breadth of God’s church. My only regret was that the costliness of the materials used and the labor intensity of the processes employed meant that those commissions were largely limited to church expressions with the financial resources to afford them. I often longed to make my work more broadly accessible. With these banner collections, I'm able to do precisely that.
Each collection is available in multiple sizes as custom-printed fabrics that each faith community can use to create beautiful, vibrant banners. And, in celebration of my shift to “retired” status, I've cut the prices for the banner collections to make them accessible to an even broader circle!
"Is our congregation equal to the task?" In my experience, nearly every faith community is gifted by at least a few persons with the basic sewing skills needed to transform these fabrics into beautiful banners. I encourage you to use this RESOURCE as assurance that your community possesses the ability to embrace this opportunity to create beautiful visual art to enrich your community’s worship.
