Many of her works are on display in Catholic schools, churches, seminaries & convents, and in other similar institutions and have been replicated under license worldwide. In addition to graduating from Xavier University, Schapker has spent years in Catholic studies and contemplation.  She finds surrender to the Holy Spirit as the true path in the creative process.
