This is where I used to live until April 28, 2012. My former house is named "The Elves' Nest." It is in the suburbs of Boston. On the left of the house is my studio, with its sloping glass windows. For more views of my house, go to

Welcome to Gallery Three of the Lamplighters Online Museum. This site has Christian illuminated calligraphy (other than the Bible), secular illuminated calligraphy and representational art. On this site are two articles about my art.The first one, My Art and God's Calling for Me, discusses my struggles as a Christian artist. The second, How I Create My Illuminated Calligraphy, describes the creative process behind my illuminations.

Everything in this site is freely offered to all who wish to enjoy it. You may download pictures and articles, but not, of course, for commercial use. Any pictures that are downloaded will not be of the highest resolution, but will be good enough for small prints. I welcome comments and reactions, also donations. There are many things that I hope to do to upgrade the quality of the images, to explore other means of outreach, and to prepare for presentations in various venues, so any funds received will be used for these kinds of purposes. This is a non-commercial ministry. It goes forth with my prayer that God will use it to bless all who view it. 

I would like to hear from some of you who may wish to pass on any comments, ideas, or suggestions. Let me know if my site has been of value to you. I am definitely interested in receiving mail. Write to my post office box or g-mail me.
