My primary research field is modern and contemporary art, with a particular interest
in artworks that explore issues related to identity and corporeality. I am interested
in how a robust theology of the Incarnation can inform the ways in which Christians
engage with the visual arts. In addition to scholarly articles on Hawaiian landscape
painting and contemporary Black photographers, I frequently write and speak to laypeople
on the intersection of faith and visual culture. In the classroom, I am particularly
passionate about teaching students to write well, and to be able to communicate effectively
about images and created objects. My first book, Redeeming Vision: A Christian Guide to Looking at and Learning from Art (2023), is available from Baker Academic Press.
My husband, Noel Weichbrodt ’04, is a software developer and we have two young sons.
We enjoy biking and hiking as a family, and we love showing hospitality and throwing
