Damon is a Visual Artist and Constructive Theologian whose talents are directed toward the intersection of art and spirituality. His creations are based upon insights gained through his research of theological and philosophical texts which he gives visual expression through the use of color, line, and symbol. His mission is:
“To Give divine light form through the manifestation of symbolic images that encourage reflection upon the myriad ways that Spirit reveals itself within our world.”
Dr. Powell received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute, his Master of Divinity from Payne Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Philosophy from the Graduate Theological Union. After obtaining his BFA, he began a career as a professional illustrator and freelance artist. A series of pivotal events led him to pursue a calling to ministry and theological training. However, after entering into ministry his theological studies helped him to understand that his visual artistry was an integral part of his vocation and ongoing spiritual practice.
At present, he is available for commissioned works of art, purchase of his original works, high-quality archival prints, speaking engagements, classes and workshops, research collaborations, academic research, and writing.
