Artist Statement
I seek the nexus between art, science and religion. My 2020 I received a MA in theology with honors from the Virginia Theological Seminary VTS) and received the Yoder Award for artistic Christian Evangelical work. My thesis was on John Polkinghorne, and I have drafted my first book The 21st Century Way of Seeing: The Nexus of Art, Science, and Religion. I have held a solo exhibit entitled the Sentient Universe (all works sold or donated) and shown work at University of Concordia, Portland, OR, VTS, and various cathedrals and churches. Recently, I have been commissioned for a work for VTS and completed a work for the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. As a committed Christian anad artist and theologian, I offer my artistic presence to our community.

In 1999 I retired from practicing law, and then returned to school for an additional BA in studio art. Next, I attended the Boston School for the Museum of Fine Arts for post graduate work, ran my own ArtStudio12, and later enrolled at VTS for an MA in theology. I enjoy speaking to others and hope that you will call or write with your thoughts. Thanks, Elta
