Abstract Spiritual Original Painting by Linda McCray

Welcome to Linda McCray Studio, LLC
My passion in creating is translating sacred realties into abstract spiritual original paintings to spark spiritual imagination in others, regardless of their traditions. My art-and-spirit has moved me to also offer art ministry, spiritual direction, teaching, writing and public speaking.

I hope you enjoy your visit,
Linda McCray

Courses, Writing & Speaking

I create abstract spiritual paintings for all kinds of spaces: your home or office, churches and chapels, gathering spaces, nondenominational hospital chapels and meditation rooms. There are a number of paintings available for purchase on my website. I enjoy collaborating with others to create commissioned art that expresses their journey. Permission to use my work may be granted upon request.

In earlier periods of my fine art, I created representational art depicting railroads, landmarks and landscapes.

I create representational illustrations and design books for clients.



Through my liturgical art ministry I offer paintings, art-and-environment design, and art consulting. I share my creative prayer form of visio divina, which is rooted in tradition, through custom art-as-prayer retreats and praying-with-art worship services, which I create and facilitate at your place. I offer traditional spiritual direction and direction through the arts, for individuals and groups, long distance or in person.


I teach by instructing, writing and speaking. As an adjunct art professor, I specialize in teaching art-and-spirit courses online at University of Mary and Loyola University Chicago. Several of my articles on liturgical art have been published. I have lectured at a number of conferences, art museums, churches and universities. I create The Liturgical Artists Directory.


Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.”
