She creates liturgical art; custom art-as-prayer retreats and worship services; liturgical art-and-environment design; liturgical art exhibitions; and offers liturgical art consulting and spiritual direction through the arts. She shares her passion for art-and-spirit by teaching online, as an adjunct professor, for Loyola University-Chicago and the University of Mary in Bismarck, N.D.
