W. N. Varvel has been on a journey of academic research and self-discovery for the past twelve years, leading to the unexpected discovery and decoding of the interpretation of the Mona Lisa. He researches and writes about the Italian High Renaissance in Canada and the United States.

During graduate study at the University of Michigan and Michigan State, he established the collaboration between Leonardo’s The Battle of Anghiari and Michelangelo’s The Battle of Cascina.

A graduate of Texas A&M with degrees in chemical and petroleum engineering, he held positions at Chevron Texaco and founded A-Plus Tutoring in College Station, Texas.

The Lady Speaks compels the Church to re-examine biblical texts and iconic
religious works of art to derive refined truths which currently run counter to
traditional patriarchal and androcentric interpretation.”
