At The Light Project we’re seeking to grow and expand what we do and enable more and more people to work as evangelists.
I’m convinced that the way forward for us to do this is to help new evangelists to become self- supporting. This may be through business, individuals supporting an evangelist or even part time work to enable evangelists to dedicate time to demonstrate good news wherever they can.
I’ve taken a day or two a week to paint and grow as an artist to relieve some much needed finances back into the ministry of The Light Project and so that I too may seek to have a ‘mixed income’ to support my ministry and enable me to continue heralding the good news of Jesus wherever I can!
Don’t get me wrong, the ministry still needs people to stand with us and financially support us, it’s just that we want to do more and more and don’t want our central budget to be a deciding factor if someone is called by God to the ministry of evangelism.
So for me, I love to paint and I am taking commissions. This is a real joy for me and one that I feel led in by Jesus.
So, please do get in touch if you would like to commission me to paint for you: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some examples of paintings I have done recently:
If you would like me to paint for you please email me at email@example.com
The process is usually in 4 simple steps that takes about a month to six weeks:
1. You provide me with an idea of what the painting is for and what size canvas you would like.
2. I send sketches and ideas of what I could paint.
3. We agree on a theme and feel of the painting.
4. I send you the painting as well as a print out of some of the thoughts and prayers and prophetic words that went into making the painting.
Here are the canvas sizes I like to use with the prices too. Postage and packaging is usually around £50 for the larger paintings and £30 for smaller.

The cost of making Sculptures and large art installations are worked out on an individual basis.
Here are some examples of large paintings I have done this year:Spreading hope
This was commissioned by the Baptist Union of Great Britain in 2015:
Occasionally I am asked to make sculptures or do paintings for churches.
Cambourne church in Cambridgeshire asked me to make a ‘Cambourne Cross.’ The town is a new town, loads of cars, traffic and construction. Notice the green highlighted text on the tire. It is finished. It is done.
This is a sculpture I made for the foyer of Cambourne Church. It represents the hope for the new town of Cambourne, which is only 12 years old, and the many many families who live there.
As artist in residence for Chelmsley Wood Baptist Church in 2013 I did a range of community art projects. From painting to making sculptures I served the community in different ways and took the opportunities to engage with people about the news of Jesus.
If you would like me to do a commission or serve you as an artist in residence with you in some capacity, please do let me know.
