Meet Our Artists
Interreligious Insight has been blessed with the contributions of many fine artists and photographers, whose work regularly graces our pages. Their inspiring images help to tell the stories and illustrate the concepts set out by our writers. From time to time, we’ll use this space to introduce these creative individuals.

Lonnie Hanzon
Artist, inventor, philosopher and showman, Colorado artist Lonnie Hanzon has gained national renown for his over-the-top, incredibly detailed works of art. Comfortable with any material, from sugar to steel to sequins, Hanzon is a design daredevil with a true DaVinci spirit: multi-disciplined, cross-trained, and absolutely fearless. A member of the Interreligious Insight Editorial Board, Lonnie has been a faithful partner from the very beginning. Examples of his creative genius can be found in every issue and have been featured on several covers.

Liz Gill Nielson
The cover art for this issue is Liz Gill Nielson’s enchanting “Lotus Mountain”. Her work has been featured in many issues of the journal. Liz is a painter, printmaker, and designer. In her recent work in painting and multimedia collaboration with musicians and storytellers, she strives to create a mythology of form that reveals the web of connection between humans and the natural world. Liz received her B.A. in visual arts from Columbia University in 2002 and shows her work in New York, Virginia, Oregon, and the Boston area. She and her husband, composer Duncan Neilson, live in Portland, OR.
