A sketch of Leonie Martin by Brother Michael O'Neill McGrath, OSFS

With the kind permission of Brother Michael O'Neill McGrath, OSFS, I have the joy of sharing his sketch of Leonie.  As far as I know, it's one of very few artistic representation of Leonie in existence.  I am happy on the feast of St. Francis de Sales to share this homage to Leonie from her Salesian family.

The sketch of Leonie is not yet available for distribution.  Brother Mickey is the author of "Journey with Therese of Lisieux: Celebrating the Artist in Us All.


He has created several beautiful icons of St. Therese and many of other saints.  His work radiates lightness, joy, and playfulness.  Please see his icons at Trinity Religious Artwork and Icons, where they are available for sale.
