Biography

After teaching Studio Art for many years at Loyola Marymount University, Sr. Gen continued her work in stained glass until her retirement in 2006. Her magnificent works can be found in churches, hospitals and schools in the Southern California area. Sr. Gen learned the art of stained glass from nationally known artist Roger Darricarrere whom she met during her sabbatical in 1975. She has said of her art: "My challenge is not to imitate, but to recreate and abstract images into their very essence. Beauty of line and color alone are sufficient to produce a successful work of art. In my work, I try to create a spiritual ambience in sacred space with glorious color and dynamic line. My goal is to complement the liturgy and to create a visual celebration of praise."
