I became a knight of St Michael in Rome three years ago and was then asked to go to write my first icon in Ireland of St Michael. This was to become a life changing experience and since then I became part of a group of iconographers at Hyning monastery in Carnforth studying under sister Stella an iconographer of over 40 years experience.
Ceramic artist and Iconographer I have had a love of ceramics for most of my life, and in 2009 graduated with a First Class Honours in ceramics from the university of central Lancashire where I also worked for many years. Through prayer, silence and meditation my icons have brought me to a new spiritual awareness, it had become a powerful source of knowledge of God in my life. Icons are windows to heaven, written not painted as we are writing the gospel in colour, light and form. I feel finally, I am becoming the artist God always destined me to be.
