This year’s milestone is one that I would never have asked for. Actually each year, month, week, day, hour, minute, breath….you get the idea. As I start to write this in July for later this year I am concious that this has been in the back of my thoughts more than any other year since […]

Studio time today had me completing this work I started yesterday, already having insight into how it could look when finished, but not knowing for sure until it was finished. Each week for me this time in the studio is reflecting on prayer. Church today, through worshipping in song and worshipping through the word feeds […]

This was started last week in Church as a response to the theme multiplying hope. It is also about getting back on the studio horse in my new studio space after a very disjointed finish to an overly tormultous 2020. This image marries together the eye witness of Jesus life, death and resurrection seen by […]

As the series “get us out of here” comes to an end in iso church, I am reminded of how the narrative of the Israelites leaving Egypt talked about over the last few months, has given me fresh insights into “known” scripture. This artwork has developed over the last couple of weeks. Today I’ve been […]

In iso church studio time today. Lots of meaty stuff in the menu. This one thing stuck. “God isn’t rescuing the Israelites for them.God rescued the Israelites for him.” He’s doing the same in all our situations. If we are honest with ourselves our focus is often, way too often, on what and how we […]

This was my staff devotion for 11th May 2018 In recent times I have found myself challenged to complete old work in order to release the new. Losing someone I used to work with to cancer just before Easter this year heightened this also, and I was and I am confronted more with God’s call […]

The end of term with a seemingly unending list of things to do, and the things already ticked off, is looming. I think the impending dread is from all the things yet to be completed and work still to be handed in and marked. My biggest nemesis….me. I find myself in a time of reflection […]

This is one of my favourite pieces and I am glad that it didn’t sell when it was in an exhibition. It hangs on my wall in the sitting room, or what our Frida Kahlo has claimed as, her playroom. That means no TV. A sitting space beside the kitchen and living room area, where […]

We all have interesting stories and histories. And by interesting, I mean, out of “the norm”, those experiences which have in some ways defined who we are, yet are far from where we wanted to be or desire to be. When I started studying Art at university over 14 years ago my intention was to […]

I have always kept a journal or a visual diary of some kind, well at least since my teenage years. What I wrote in them then was nothing prolific or even prophetic, but was more in line with contacts, birth dates and notes from friends and also including a marriage ceremony message from one of […]

Mother’s day

As an artist my work is often about seeking intimacy with God. To explore what it looks like to seek him and to know him more. To know him more deeply. To be listening to him more intentionally. The more I work on this intimacy with God the more I come to realise it’s more […]

He cares for even the birds

Sometimes I think I need reminding of God’s bigger picture. And as I write this it is obvious that I/we need reminding of this more often than we should, but in the messiness of life, God is so patient with his children. Especially me. What I am coming to realise is that in my own […]
