“The Lion of Judah”
This painting was commissioned by a church minister. The symmetry of this beautiful lion was important to get perfect in this painting, as well as the sense of dignity, grace and power. No-one needs to tell a lion that it’s a lion!
The Lion of Judah is a name given to Jesus Christ, to represent his kingship and being from the royal line of David (who was from the tribe of Judah). We also hear about the “lion and the lamb” – the lion representing the victorious, resurrected Messiah and the gentle lamb representing his sacrifice for sin.
The prophet Isaiah, foretelling about the Messianic age, mentions fierce creatures like the wolf and the lion “lying down with the lamb” and not being ferocious.
C.S.Lewis also uses the lion, Aslan, as a symbol of Jesus, being a just, wise, but “not safe” leader, in his “Chronicles of Narnia” series. The description of Aslan singing Narnia into existence in “The Magician’s Nephew” is most interesting!
This painting deserved incredible attention to detail and it took several weeks. Before it went to its owner it was professionally photographed and I have the permission to reproduce up to 70 prints.

When we draw close to God in worship, something happens in the spiritual realm. There is an overlapping; an activity and movement; glorifying and liberating things take place.
“Worship” painting, Oil on canvas, 80x60cm
Another intuitive painting inspired by beholding someone singing their heart out to the Lord in humility but with energy. I really feel that the colours, softness and sweeping movements that came to me while painting this express what words cannot say.
“Like a Mighty Warrior”
Based on Jeremiah 20:9-12, and other Words to do with living water, the uncontainable nature of God, and “one like a Son of man”.
A prophetic, intuitive painting, inspired by a song that I wrote and recorded recently “Like a Fire Burning in my Heart”. To listen to this song click here

“In the Beginning was the Word” greeting card
Why not try something a bit different with these eternal words from the Gospel of John. If you’re looking for something more thought-provoking and meaningful than the average Christmas greeting card, this is the one for you. This card can be sent any time of year, but especially during the Christmas/New Year/Winter season.
Flowing lines have been incorporated into the ancient-looking text to help communicate the timeless power of the spoken words of Jesus. The New Testament was written in Greek, but Hebrew is closer to what Jesus would have actually spoken. This is the transliteration:
“Ha ruach hi hamechaiah: habasar einu mo-il klum. Ha dvarim she debarti alechem ruach hem ve chaim.
I’ve been meditating on verses like these for a while. Words spoken the way Jesus spoke them contain spiritual and creative energy. In the book of Genesis we read that God made the universe by speaking words.
John equates Jesus as the physical embodiment of the Word. In the first few lines of his Gospel he says that the Word (Jesus) was in the beginning and that through him all things were made.
In a similar way, Colossians 1:16 says that in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible…all things have been created through him and for him.
Hebrews 11:3 puts it even more clearly. “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Words are the parent force.
It is my conviction that those of us who believe and who love the Lord should be speaking His words like He did and doing the same works that He did, to show people how much God loves them.
We can do this when we don’t doubt (Mark 11:23) and when we co-operate with the Holy Spirit, who energises – gives real, lasting, genuine life – to everything.
