A new, exciting project, collating fierce female faith stories and their links to Cathedrals in the UK.
Depicting both ancient and modern women in a stylised iconostasis interpretation, these unsung tales and 'Unveiled Faces' are depicted alongside their appropriately painted Pink Cathedral.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV
Living under the shadow of the awesome building that is Ely Cathedral, it would be rude not to attempt to portray it.
This Cathedral has a lot to answer for when it comes to inspiration both in my faith, my painting career and inspiration for my 'Unveiled Faces' project.
As this project continues more UK cathedrals will be added to my portfolio.

Notes to Treasure came about through Lockdown 2020 when my online Sunday Church Service was a time I would sit and take notes - those notes turned into doodles, which turned in to pictures, which turned in to paintings. And so my Painter's Praise Art Practice was born.
These praise paintings have been exhibited in The Gallery in Holt, North Norfolk as part of the IEA Annual Exhibition and most recently in The Babylon Gallery as part of 'Fierce Tales Collective'.
They can be bought as original pieces, mounted on a wood cradled panel or as archival quality giclée prints.
These doodles and illustrations are created as a response to prayer and meditation and are part of my personal faith journal.
These scribbles are available as Giclee prints and mugs.
Living in East Cambridgeshire Fens, surrounded by the most beautiful skyscapes & open panorama, which simplicity hides a wealth of shapes, angles & skies that I seek to portray using the vibrant colour palette synonymous with my work.

Since September 2022 I have been studying Theology, Mission and Evangelism at The Light College and Collective, affiliated to the University of Chester.
Starting this course was like finding my tribe. A wonderful group of like-minded, diverse people being led to affirm and encourage each other while learning and being encouraged to spread the good news.
If you're thinking of studying Theology I thoroughly recommend you look at their courses and I hope to see you there sometime!
