Our Nativity Story

An Intimate Portrait.

One of the things I enjoy doing,  is to tell stories through pictures and to explore feelings and experiences, using colour, figures and shape.  In this series of acrylic paintings,  I use shape, figures and colour to explore the events of the Christmas story, particularly through the experiences of Mary and Joseph, but also touching on those of other people involved. Using reference texts from both Luke and Matthew to inform my work, I explored the intimate moments and events of the nativity.

I also hope to encourage the viewer to imagine themselves, in the manner of Ignatian spirituality, into the shoes of those involved.

For myself, as I am particularly fascinated by Mary as a mother and many of these pictures are made to reflect that whilst also telling the bigger story.
