Since childhood I have expressed myself through drawing and many forms of creativity, including needlework. Around 1995, my neighbor introduced me to quilting. I learned the “old-fashioned way” of how to measure, draw and cut the squares that, once assembled, become the blocks that begin expanding into a quilt. My first quilt, a wall hanging, was completely handmade – no sewing machine – including the top-quilted stitch design. Now, most quilts I make are a combination of sewing machine and hand-quilting. I prefer the look of hand-quilting on the top-stitch design. For me, it truly enhances the soul of the artist who has devoted their talent of color choice and block pattern design while thinking of the recipient.
Matthew has his first exhibition here at St. Philips. He is currently in the 4th grade. His hobbies include drawing , building things, and petting cats. He wants to be an architect when he grows up.
Photography is my spiritual discipline. My first published photographs were taken to illustrate my work as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer, but later, as I followed a career path that led to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church, my intent has shifted from showing what happened to exploring what matters. I’m especially interested in the way light can be a metaphor for spiritual presence in the physical world. My work has been included in juried exhibitions, including the 2022 Phillips Mill Photo Exhibition and the Jack Rosen Commemorative Documentary Photography Exhibition at New Hope Arts until September 5.

As soon as I was able to drive, I began haunting art museums everywhere I went. In 2019, after retiring from a career in advertising, I started oil painting lessons. I paint still life subjects that are commonplace objects. I think my work is about stopping time. It asks viewers to pause to look more closely at things often overlooked or taken for granted. I grew up in Woodbourne (Langhorne) and for the past 36 years have lived in Buckingham with my husband, the Bucks County historian Terry McNealy, in an historic home that teaches us to be connoisseurs of crumble.
