A Bit About Me
My iconographic journey began during training for the priesthood, when I started exploring possibilities for expressing theology through image as well as word. I am ordained in the Church of England and served in parish ministry for nearly thirteen years, undertaking training in iconography and calligraphy alongside my priestly duties. Sensing God's call to focus full-time on ministry as an iconographer and sacred artist, in early 2023 I set up a studio in my new home in Wiltshire, from where I continue to explore the spiritual dimensions of traditional and contemporary art forms.
In the words of Proust, I strive to see God's world differently.
