Land of Carmel Art Inspirations

 Our Lady of Mount Carmel IconWelcome to the Land of Carmel Art Inspirations At Immaculate Heart Hermitage – created in the Presence of the Living God, seeking to show His Divine Beauty through icons, symbols, and photos of God's artwork in creation. These original artworks have been inspired by the Carmelite charism which has been lived and loved since the 13th Century. In the silence and solitude of Mount Carmel, the first Carmelites lived as hermits. With the bonds of community to strengthen them, the hermits lived close to God and nature, beholding His Beauty and Presence in their surroundings and each other. Pondering the Word of God day and night intensified their sense of all creation telling forth the glory of God. Throughout the centuries, this intimate experience has been stuttered forth in various expressions of art to tell something of His Divine Beauty.

St. Elijah IconThis fascination with God's Beauty continues to inspire Carmelites to tell something of this Spirit–filled experience. It can find expression in many ways: song, writings, music, prayer, works of kindness, art, etc. This site presents some of those inspired artworks created by a Carmelite who looks to the Origins of the Order to discover anew the simplicity, silence and solitude of standing in the Presence of the Living God, as did those first Carmelites on Mount Carmel. The first Icons written by her where those of the three great exemplars of our Order: Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Elijah and St. Joseph. In a desire to tell something of the beauty of Carmel, these inspired artworks have been made available for you to see and purchase. When you purchase any of these art works, it is a contribution to the Immaculate Heart Hermitage Inc., a nonprofit organization for the purpose of prayer in the Presence of the Living God for the good of all souls by a life of silence, solitude, and simplicity. The proceeds go to housing, food, art supplies, clothing and other needs. At the Hermitage appropriate sewing tasks are also done upon request. These include such things as the sewing of corporals and purificators for the celebration of the Eucharist. Know that my prayerful gratitude goes out to you in all your dreams and needs.

St. Joseph Protector of Carmelites IconIn the following sections you can see the Icons, Icon Cards, Holy Cards, Bookmarks, Leaflets, etc. that are available for your purchase. You can also make personal requests that can format the artwork into greeting cards. Personal greetings inside the cards may also be requested. All cards have a short quote (usually from the Scriptures) on the lower left-hand side. The proposed prices are listed for each item.

 Sister Mary Catherine, Hermit  Thank you for visiting Land of Carmel Art Inspirations! It is a tremendous pleasure to let you see the art work the Lord Jesus has given into the hand of His little servant. It is now only a little over two years since I have begun to actually write icons and work with drawings. As you see, it is seeped in my Carmelite spirituality, seeking to let God's Presence be manifest. I recently moved from the desert-like area of Arizona to the Black Hills of South Dakota.
