A career freelance artist, I am currently traveling the country, visually capturing content in meetings and conferences. You can see samples of my work on my website: www.brucevanpatter.com. In between trips, I work on projects in my studio in Central PA, where I live with my wife and daughter. She is the last of our four children and is heading to college in the fall, making us empty nesters after 33 years of active parenting. A new chapter is about to begin!
I have two great areas of passion: creativity and communication. Those come together as I seek to inspire others to see their walk of faith as a journey. As God clarifies my understanding of my calling through the Fellowship of Ailbe, I hope to be able to encourage others to press on, break out, push through into a dynamic experience with Jesus.
One of the ways I’m striving to do that is through my column on the Ailbe website, called 8:18. It’s an effort to improve my ability to be aware of my surroundings and to let those observations lead me to pray.
