CHRISTIAN TRIBUTES

CHRISTIAN TRIBUTES

Out of dark comes light. In 1981,aged 16, Stephen B. Whatley suffered the tragic loss of his beloved, devoted mother Marjorie J. Whatley (1943-1981). The devastating bereavement lead the artist on a search for spiritual depth both in his life and art; and whilst he was born an Anglican, he became attracted to the devotions within the Catholic Church – to which he converted in 2011.

Since 2000, he has been drawn to make statements of prayer and faith; often painting on specific anniversaries and Feast Days – with what he has called a “divine push’, creating both works of hope and light. His Christian tribute paintings are in private collections worldwide and public collections including Westminster Cathedral & Newman University in the UK & The Carrollton School of The Sacred Heart in Miami, USA. You can read more about the artist’s journey of faith and art in some of the published articles in the Press section.

Here you will find a selection of both paintings and drawings – some sold, some available for purchase: full details are in the captions above each image. To enquire about purchases or commissioning works of art, please contact the artist.
