This blog is a journal of sorts, tracking the development of the artwork I create as part of, or in response to my experience of worship, prayer, spiritual experience and theological reflection.
I used to consider art as something I did when I had time to dig out the pencils and pastels and create something for fun. What I have discovered is that when I begin to use it to express worship, prayer and as a way to reflecting on scripture and that sort of stuff, it really helps and energises me. Also others seem to get something from it too and that’s another reason for blogging it.
So I plan to keep doing it, no matter how rubbish the creations are, because it opens up a way for me to express my faith and spiritual journey. Plus if I do it more it might get better. Or it might not but that is not the point.
