Maike Hickson, 1Peter 5: This summer, our little family has been blessed by the generosity of neighbors who also happen to be fellow Catholics. Both of these neighbors – a husband and a wife – are gifted artists. H. Reed Armstrong and Roxolana Armstrong both have an artistic ardor and talent, and each has a reputation of their own for making beautiful Catholic art. Reed is a sculptor, and the lady of the house, Roxolana, is a painter — particularly of Sacred Icons. Thus, they complement each other in a wonderful way. What strikes an observer in both cases is how much their art, in their own unique ways, is permeated by their faith. Both arefaith-full artists. Both inspire a greater faith in others with their art.
