Carole Bury  Christian Artist  Visit: uses paper, paint, stitch and drawings.

Her work reveals a fascination for repetition and multiples, where each piece answers and asks of the previous, and similarly a link to the intended.  Her work is derived of the beauty in nature and examines this wonderment. Carole’s drawings and stitched pieces are tools illuminating a link or a nudge to a journey with God.

Carole is based in the Cotswolds, lives, worships and works in a small rural community, surrounded by her beloved woodlands and open farmland.

Following a degree in Fine Art Embroidery at Manchester Polytechnic, Carole has exhibited for many years, both her drawings and Paper Textiles.  She has led workshops for the Christian Arts Festival.


John Bateson  Christian Artist  Visit:

John lived most of his adult life in Brixton in south east London. The brightness, bustle and colour of the  immediate locality forms a back drop to a number of his paintings and prints  

He works in a variety of media: gouache, water colour and pastel and linocut print making.
“I see painting and printing as a form of exploration; you may have an idea where you are heading but you never quite know where you are going to end up. This is what makes the whole process so exciting.”

He leads art workshops, his experience of doing this has been with people with special needs, but these could be adapted.

Niki Hare   Visit:

Niki Hare is a diverse visual artist whose work revolves around ideas of existence and vision.

 The work dissects and explores the world she has suddenly found herself in. There is a focus on detailing and observation. “The world is paused, broken down into layers, shuffled, pushed back together and sent on its way. Nothing is static, there is a sense of the temporary, imbalance, discomfort.”

Niki has been an artist for Graffiti Wall Workshops for the Christian Arts Festial

Mike Tucker  Christian Artist  Visit:  .

I am part of a group: Inside-Out: six Christian artists – two stone carvers, two textile artists and two painters. My recent paintings nearly all stem from topical subjects from which the facets of the Christian gospel and ethics emerge. This is a way I believe in which the presence of God and of Jesus Christ can be sensed in the happenings of the present-day world.






Deborah Harrison Christian Sculptor  Visit:

Her stone carving uses a technique called ‘Carving Direct’ which was used by Henry Moore and Michaelangelo. As Deborah carves she ‘reaches a skin’ after which she describes the sculpture taking on a life of its own.

She has been interviewed on Radio Gloucestershire about a series of Portland Carvings called, ‘The Testimony of The Dispossessed’ which highlights issues such as sex trafficking, depression, body image, addiction and the oppression of the poor.

Deborah enjoys working collaboratively with organisations to raise access to the arts in the community.  She has exhibited widely both nationally and locally in Gloucestershire; including Gloucester Cathedral (Christian Arts Festival), Sloane Square, the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery on Pall Mall in London.  Member of Inside-Out.

She run workshops – sculpting in stone.


Royse Murphy  Christian Stone Carver

Royse exhibits his work, does demonstrations at events and is a member of Inside Out.

A familiar face at St. Mary’s Church.  He comes with his tools, his bench and the truly beautiful slate tiles he is working on. He is carving a series of fourteen Stations of the Cross and mounting the polished and gilded slate on blocks of beechwood with bronze resin inlay Haikus.  He uses his hammer and chisel while quietly talked about how the traditional meditational forms relate to current concerns. His own Christian convictions prove a stimulating basis for discussion with visitors of all ages and persuasions.
