Much of the work contained on this website began with the Doctor of Ministry Doctoral Project: “Communal Discernment for Catholic Young Adults” (Washington Theological Union, DC 2015). The cartoons have been developed as I have learned more about the nuances of the Spiritual Exercises as reflected in my own interior life, and those of the young adults, seminarians and spiritual directees and supervisees with whom I have worked over the last dozen years. It is an ongoing learning project for me personally and professionally.
All artwork is original and can be found on www.godseekerart.com. The works are expressions of prayer, examen, praise, a growing sense of myself, God, family and community over many years. The mandala form of prayer continues to be a source of inspiration for me as it resembles the place of silence, prayer and dreams where I do not control the outcome. God consistently catches my attention when I take the time to muse on paper and then pray through what emerged despite myself.
What a gift you bring to the world with your work – prayed about (for and through), richly textured, eloquently delivered, and generously shared. I am appreciative and inspired.
Love your artwork, Leanne! Very beautiful and personal.
