Commissioned Art & Design | Diocese of Helena

I was commissioned to design this one-of-a-kind book and create its illuminations. I created paintings for each of the five Lenten Gospel readings, which are heard when people seek baptism. The paintings are on the cover and repeat throughout the book.

All of the Diocese of Helena’s Catechumens for the next hundred years will inscribe their names in this book. It is permanently housed in the Cathedral of Saint Helena.
