the story behind green lime arts
 

About Lois
 I never planned on doing photography or working as an artist. The adventure began when I was on retreat at the Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford, Ohio. I had purchased a small camera that had a remarkable macro lens. 

I have been a teacher most of my life, a pastoral minister for some, and the last academic adventure was in law (I am a retired attorney). My husband and I have two adult sons, one of whom is married and the other "over the moon" with his girl friend. We share our home with two senior dogs and a senior cat (all three courtesy of the younger son).

Currently, my art, the travels to exhibits, conferences, and shows as well as an adult education class in the Text at my parish fill the hours of my day. I won't say much about cleaning house...you understand.

About The Company.  My original name for my art was "smallsmallacts.com" and many folks will remember the work under that title. As I began to explore other media, the time seemed right for a change. I really enjoy the lime green as a color; it inspires me, and it connotes new life and spring while at the same time functioning as a wonderful contrast to deeper shades.

The Intention. When I opened those first shots on my laptop, I recognized that the images created in themselves a liminal space or invitation for reflection. And, the question became, "What was I being asked to do?

The intention of the work is to support the care of relationships and one's spiritual practice. I firmly believe that the Sacred is in the Ordinary...another way of expressing the challenge of finding the Holy in all things and circumstances.
