MATTHEW ALDERMAN, KM, is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame's distinguished classical architecture program, a published illustrator and designer, and a frequent speaker on churchbuilding and sacred art.
His designs, writing and art have appeared within the pages of Sacred Architecture, First Things, Antiphon, and The Living Church and are in collections from California to Singapore. They have graced the interiors of missals by LTP (Chicago) and HarperCollins UK, and book covers from Ignatius and Catholic University of America Press. From 2013-2018 he produced yearly full-color Christmas cards for FAITH Catholic, publishers to 29 US diocese, and also two covers and a 6-part article series for affiliate Parable Magazine.
He is one of America's few heraldic artists, creating coats of arms, seals, banners and related art for institutions and private individuals--including three bishops, two dioceses, one abbey, one basilica, and one pontifical college, the Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio. In 2020, he was named official artist to the Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, a leading American body in the field.
Matthew has undertaken several design consulting and interiors projects under his own name, associating with local firms for architectural work, for churches in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and the historic proto-cathedral in Vladivostok, Russia. In 2015, he taught a summer course on Sacred Architecture at Santa Croce, Rome for American seminarians. He is now a Project Designer at the venerable church design firm of Cram and Ferguson in Concord, MA, where he refers new architectural and interior commissions.
Matthew is a Knight of Magistral Grace in the Order of Malta, an 800-year-old lay religious and chivalric institution within the Catholic Church. He has served as a volunteer charioteer at the Order's annual Lourdes pilgrimage and also walked the last 100 kilometers to Compostela on foot with his parents.
