Rosa Wain

Rosa Wain

Rosa Wain I have been painting for as long as I can remember. My preferred medium is watercolour, as I love their bright, vibrant pigments. You may recognise my childhood love of kaleidoscopes in some of my work – I find it gives structure and form to the subjects. I have also used acrylics, as the picture below of Grapes and the Vine show from  John’s Gospel, Chapter 15. When I paint ‘large and live’, during services at my Church, I use poster paints – they are easy mixing, bright and bold – and dry relatively quickly, as most times I only have about 30 minutes to work in ! The lower picture is an example, and is about six feet high by eight feet wide.  Using an image that is produced from the theme of the service has a powerful connecting effect for many who do not relate just to the spoken...

Deborah Harrison A contemporary sculptor who mainly works in stone but also in other mediums About Debs Deborah Harrison (2018) Sculptor www.debsharrison-sculptor.co.uk @debsjharrison (facebook, Instagram, Twitter) I am a contemporary sculptor who mainly works in stone but also in other mediums.

Annette Turner

Annette Turner

Annette Turner Annette Turner is an artist who is also a Christian About Annette My overriding aim is that everything that I make should have the quality of beauty, such that if you found it in a field without any explanatory information, you would stoop to pick it up and keep it, even if you didn’t know what it was. Some of my work, but by no means all, deals with specifically Christian or moral themes. When I make Christian art I find it very difficult because I am trying to translate astonishing and shocking events, which most of the key points in the Christian story are, into something which avoids cultural neutering. This sometimes forces me to recognise elements of my own scepticism. In this way a Christian artist is a kind of Everyman, expressing the dialogue between faith and doubt. I also include elements of narrative and humour in my work and gain a lot of inspiration from the physical world and our position in it. Somewhere along the line aesthetic rapture crosses over into spiritual experience. For the rest, I believe in doing whatever you can, as well as you can, for as long as you can. I’ll be happy with that. Artwork for sale War & Peace Five Elements £385 The Hunter £450 The Annunciation Box £450 Nativity £175 House of Hamlet £3,500 View Annette Turner's Gallery...

Bibby Zinram “I actually have no faith and envy those that do. So I won’t add words that aren’t true.” About Bibby As an artist, I find all human faces endlessly fascinating, amusing, lovely and fantastically interesting irrespective of so called beauty.  I have no idea what drives my creativity, all I know is that it is a driving force that irritates, urges, feeds and satisfies me.  When my work is near to what I want to say, It is thrilling.  The opposite is true when no matter how hard I’m trying, it just doesn’t happen.   Artwork for sale The Taming of the Shrew £285 The Swimmer £275 The New Hat £275 The Cat on the Window Seat £345 Some Day my Prince will come £295 My lovely Tablecloth £525 Lady wearing a Parrot Hat £275 Girl with the large ear-ring £355 Ever Upwards £450 Birthday Tea at the Seaside £325 A Bird in the Hand £295 View Bibby Zinram's Gallery...

Carole Bury

Carole Bury

Carole Bury About Carole Textile artist, Carole Bury uses paper and stitch and drawings. Her work reveals a fascination for repetition and multiples, where each piece answers and asks of the previous, and similarly a link to the intended. With the completion of each piece the next work is already a whisper or a breath; is already the answer or the question. Her work is derived of the beauty in nature and examines this wonderment. Carole’s drawings and stitched pieces are tools illuminating a link or a nudge to a journey with God. Trains of thoughts held in two dimensional imagery transfer ownership to the viewer, the reality presented, and there for the taking. Carole is based in the Cotswolds, lives, worships and works in a small rural community, surrounded by her beloved woodlands and open farmland. Following a degree in Fine Art Embroidery at Manchester Polytechnic, Carole has exhibited for many years, both her drawings and Paper Textiles. 2018   Collaborative project with author JP Williams to illustrate the book ‘Seeking the God Beyond’ Cuddesdon Arts Festival, Ripon College, Oxford Artist in Residence, Nature in Art, Gloucester Broadway Arts Festival, Demonstrator 2017   Prizewinner – Cheltenham Christian Arts Festival (theme of Wings).

Chris Griffin About Chris For me, art concerns the capture and communication of the essence of things spiritual, emotional, physical – a means of expression. One aspect of ‘Art gifted by God’ is to capture and communicate the love, beauty and grace that pervades and supports the world we live in. Faith through art is inspiring to me through the well recorded events of Christian-religious and historical significance; exhibiting work, for example, in The Presentation in the Temple exhibition of 2013 at Gloucester Cathedral and exhibitions at The Hub Gallery, Christ Church, Cheltenham.   Artwork for sale Waterfront Evening £200 The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple £160 Sundown After Fishing £200 Night out on the Town £130 Island Trading £200 Dawn £200 Archlpelago £200 View Chris Griffin's Gallery...
David Thislethwaite

David Thislethwaite

David Thislethwaite 'faith seems to be essential to noticing what we would otherwise miss' About David I paint mainly portraits and landscapes. It might seem odd to put a ‘spiritual’ tag on these, but in fact understanding painting as a gift of God – to me personally – has made a profound difference to the way I paint, and whether I paint at all! I first trained as an art historian, and it was when I read the letters and lectures of John Constable that I realised that painting is not just about seeing, but about valuing the world that God has made, and is making. Faith seems to be essential to noticing what we would otherwise miss, including the emotional resonance of the landscape. In 1998 I published a book on art, ‘The art of God and the religions of Art’, and started painting after that, moving to the beautiful Cotwolds in 1999. I enjoy sharing ‘the gift of art’ particularly with artistic beginners, who never fail to surprise me with their originality and personal vision.

Ian Knowles

Ian Knowles

Ian Knowles About Ian Icons are part of liturgical or religious art and have been used as part of Christian worship for centuries. Mr Knowles explains that creating an icon is a spiritual experience and one that uses traditional processes and natural materials. The process of painting an icon is very much a spiritual one and Mr Knowles prays before and during the creation of the icon. ‘When you paint an icon you’re trying to be in the presence of Christ and in communion with the saints,” he says. “You’re painting from the heart.” Ian Knowles Director, Bethlehem Icon Centre, Hosh Abu Jarour Star St, Bethlehem, Palestine. The Bethlehem Icon Centre is dedicated to renewing the ancient art of iconography in the land of its birth through education and the formation of collaborative workshops.

Jenny McLaughlin

Jenny McLaughlin Jenny is a qualified lecturer and an Artist and Illustrator based in Blackpool, England. About Jenny A finalist in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition, 2011, Jenny’s illustration clients include Your M & S Magazine, Fylde Borough Council, Pendle Productions, Blue Phoenix Web Design and others. Jenny’s conversion to the Christian faith came in Autumn 2012, following a prayer apologizing for previous sins and a decision to follow God and Christianity exclusively for the rest of her life: “I came to truly know God in Autumn 2012. I hadn’t truly understood what people meant when they talked about profound religious experiences before then. I’d experienced various religions over the years and gone to Church, but this was very different. I was amazed that God is actually real and cares very much about the world and ourselves. But what did I know about Christianity? Not enough, so I decided to read the Bible and also the Apocryphal books (a task I am still undertaking) and gradually I learnt more and more about Christianity. I researched the history of Christianity and talked to God about it each day.  For a while, though I am an Artist and Illustrator I was very unsure about creating religious paintings, but as I have read more and more Bible verses and scriptures I have personally come to see religious art as illustrations to help us understand God and his word more fully. Like the pictures in a children’s book, an illustration can communicate many words and concepts and can speak across language barriers. I see Art and Illustration as a very...

Jermey Houghton London Fashion Week, Olympics 2012, Highgrove and Windsor Castle, Saatchi Gallery and International Exhibitions Artwork – Westend Sheep, ‘evokes the past, the present, and the future.’ About Jeremy After training at the Slade School of Art and the University of Provence, Jeremy Houghton’s formative years as an artist were spent in South Africa as Head of Fine Art at The International School of Cape Town. On returning to England, and the village of his childhood – Broadway, he established a studio and fully devoted himself to evolving a personal aesthetic. A stock of photographs of local history, people, family, and the chronicling of everyday life often provided a starting point for creativity. The archive also referenced the Arts and Craft movement in establishing a line of artistic activity from an American colony of artists who lived in Broadway, including John Singer Sargent, to the present day. But it is in the wider context of specific commissions and international exhibitions that a broad variety of experiences have influenced Houghton’s artistic development. He was an official artist for London Fashion Week in 2008 and the Olympics in 2012; artist in residence at Highgrove in 2013 and Windsor Castle 2014; and commissioned to paint HM the Queen in 2009. In recent years, he has had solo exhibitions at The Saatchi Gallery (London), The Everard Read Gallery (Johannesburg), The Visual Arts Gallery (Delhi), and The Ashmolean Museum, Broadway. Jeremy will be in conversation with Jim Brook DA as one of the events for the Launch of Art Gifted by God in 2015. Date to be confirmed. www.jeremyhoughton.co.uk “Art Gifted by God presents...

Karen Grant

Karen Grant

Karen Grant About Karen I first felt inspired to pick up a paintbrush whilst living in Florida twenty years ago.  The brilliance of the light and the vividity of the colours sparked off something deep inside me. My introduction to watercolour painting was through a loose, free style of painting based on oriental calligraphy which focussed on carefully placed single strokes of the bush. This minimal approach gave me a sense of freedom and the confidence to explore and develop my own style. Over the last two decades, I have been evolving as an artist, discovering my own way of painting and have been fortunate to receive tuition from a number of notable artists. Colour is still very important to me but I have learnt to adapt to the more muted tones to be found in Britain. As well as watercolour, I enjoy working in oil and acrylic and find I have different uses for the different mediums. Just as each one of us is a unique created being, each work of art is an original creation. Therefore there is an infinite number of creations waiting to be produced by artists all over the world.

Nana Afua Pierre

Nana Afua Pierre

Nana Afua Pierre About Nana Afua Pierre I was 17 when I actively represented my faith through my art. I felt it was a way of expressing my faith and sharing my beliefs with others in an intimate and unobtrusive way. Many of those close to me are Christians from different denominations, Muslims, agnostics and atheists. Being able to paint calms me down, then the paintings becomes a vehicle for me to speak honestly about my core beliefs. It also takes away the judgement, anxiety, fear and indignation that can manifest when people from different belief systems come together. Gifted by God is another vehicle for me to reconnect with God, myself and others too. That connection in its authentic form can be difficult for me to achieve without my art. It’s like a lifeline.

Nic Pehkonen About Nic Nic’s work is heavily influenced by architecture. Using raw, unstretched canvas cut to shape he creates powerful forms with roughly executed surfaces and considers each piece as a solid object in its own right, occupying a space between painting and sculpture. Much of his work is rooted in concrete architecture with specific reference to industrial buildings, military installations and abandoned sites. In particular, the decaying structures occupying the ex-MOD test site at Orford Ness on the Suffolk coast are the catalyst for much of his recent and ongoing work.   Artwork for sale Sizewell A £2,225 Rusting Away £2,225 Piano Keys £800 Orfordness – inside Lab 4 £2,225 Orfordness – Inside Lab 1 £2,225 View Nic Pehkonen's Gallery...
