Father Arthur Poulin

Father Arthur Poulin holds the unique distinction of being the only monk in the Allport Editions family of artists. Residing at Incarnation Monastery in Berkeley, California, Father Poulin strives to reflect the “stunning, sacred beauty that is mirrored everywhere in Creation.”

His painstaking acrylic landscapes echo the Impressionists but project his unmistakably unique style. They can take months to create, starting with the application of up to 25 layers of primer before adding color and texture with thousands of the smallest and most precise brush strokes.

In addition to Father Poulin's fast-growing line of pointillist fine art landscape cards, his works are widely published as covers for books, magazines, journals and albums. Art critic Sister Wendy Beckett has described Father Poulin’s work as “intense and strong, with a pure clear inner radiance that is a silent witness to your vocation.”
