The Virgin Mary has been an inspiration to more people than any other woman who ever lived. For Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and Muslims, for artists, musicians, and writers, for women and men everywhere, she has shown many faces and personified many virtues.

I photograph Mary and through my photos bring her healing energy wherever it is needed.

My soul can find no staircase to Heaven
unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.
