With the completion of the two St. Paul icons, one set within a Coast Salish setting, and the other in a Squamish Nation setting, work is underway on the next commission. This too is of a new prototype, and requiring much research and possibilities in creating another new design and icon. There are currently no icons to refer to.
This commission is once again for the Chapel at St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School in North Vancouver, BC.
This new icon will be of Antonio Cuipa, the designated Protomartyr for the Cause of Sainthood of the Martyrs of the La Florida Missions.
Once the design gets completed and approved, the task of constructing and preparing the panel will follow.

In order to make my work in iconography more visible, I've place a number of Facebook Boost Ads in selected regions in Canada, to present a few icons, and also a number of emails to First Nations contacts to feature the First Nations icons. It may generate some interest in the future, but the goal for now, is to have more people seeing them. If you have any recommendations, please send me a message through my 'Contact'.
