Father Arthur Poulin is a Camaldolese Monk, priest and artist living at Incarnation Monastery in Berkeley, California.  He holds a degree in fine arts from Loyola University.  Fr. Poulin previously lived as a monk here at New Camaldoli Hermitage, and during that time received the inspiration for many of his Big Sur landscapes that are so familiar and loved by so many.

Fr. Poulin’s paintings echo the impressionists, yet he has developed his own original style. His landscape paintings reflect the stunning beauty, harmony and unity of creation. Many of his paintings are available as greeting cards, and are well-loved by all who receive them.

Fr. Poulin states of his experience of painting: “I begin every painting by covering the canvas with 20-25 layers of black gesso, building texture and preparing the ground for the sacred image. This is where the contemplative process and the experience of painting begins for me. I next apply layer after layer of small brush strokes of paint, starting with darker shades of color. In time (2-3 months), the mysterious gift of a work of light and beauty gradually emerges. Even though these landscapes are based on places I have seen and visited, I interpret them through paint so that a new vision can be seen and experienced.”

The art critic Sister Wendy Beckett has written regarding Fr. Poulin’s work: “it is intense and strong, with a pure clear inner radiance that is a silent witness to [his] vocation”.

Due to the well-publicized storms that have damaged the California Central Coast roadway system, we are unable to ship items from the Hermitage at this time, because of road closures. We will reopen this online shop once the roads open up and delivery trucks are able to reach us. We do not have an estimated time for this; it depends on Mother Nature and the progress of road repairs. Please check back here on a weekly basis for any updates. We thank you for your support and prayers. Since we are unable to welcome guests here during this road closure, our main source of supporting ourselves has been taken away. If you care to make a tax-deductible donation to help, your gift, large or small, would be received with gratitude and thanks. Please go to to learn more on how to donate. Blessings to you.
