Sr. Thomas Swanson, OP, has created many works inspired by God’s creation. We include several of her works in honor of Laudato Si’.
The beauty of Peru’s rivers, lakes and mountains led Sr. Thoma to paint the natural world, which is intimately connected to her faith.
“Who could paint those mountains, who could paint the ocean, without marveling at its source, at its creation? There is a strong pull as I paint creation and the natural world. It’s the work of God’s hands, and he gave me the gift [of art], and I’m happy to have that gift. I love it.”
Sr. Thoma Swanson, OP
Prayer to God to take care of the Earth.
