This year saw the completion of an ambitious church redecoration project at St Francis Catholic Church in Baddesley Clinton, UK. As well as making designs for the decoration of the nave and baptistery, I undertook a set of murals in the sanctuary.

The murals are intricately painted with scenes from salvation history - from the preparation of Israel in the Old Testament to the Lord's Second Coming.

Above all, their aim is to give visual expression to the invisible realities of the liturgy.

Please scroll down to explore the murals and their meaning. In total around forty angels, prophets and saints are depicted, along with numerous animals.

I was assisted thoughout the project by talents and heroic work of Lisa Abbot and, in the last month or so, Jim Blackstone.

Murals are an excellent option for any parish or monastic community seeking to revive the beauty of their liturgy.

Through them the congregation is made conscious of the 'invisible congregation' that surrounds them - countless angels, saints and even the persons of the Trinity. If properly embedded within the Church's tradition, they are also useful means to teach the faithful and proclaim the faith.

Murals are also relatively cost effective. I use a paint system which is exceptionally light fast and durable. It can be applied directly to existing plaster and, in some cases, even onto existing paint. Originally developed by Ludwig I of Bavaria in the 19th century, 'Keim' paint has stood the test of time!

Please contact me if you would like to discuss a mural project for your church.
