No More Stone Heart

Hand-lettered Words of Life

Word + Art

The name No More Stone Heart is inspired by Ezekiel 36:26 – I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. My heart has a tendency toward dryness, and I yearn for that new breath, that new song, a melody for joy and grief and hope. So I look for that which turns stone to flesh, and I find the Word of God – the Word that creates, calms, brings life.

The antidote to a stone heart is words of Life, and that is what directs my pen and paper. I write out God’s already perfect Words in ways that seek to emphasise and illustrate and colour. It’s like putting a tune to your timetables so you can remember them better. Through No More Stone Heart, I seek to refresh the familiar; amplify anthems; maybe draw your eye to something you hadn’t noticed before.

Custom Designs

Much of the work you’ll see here is commissioned. I’d love to chat with you about illustrating some words that are meaningful to you. Contact me to share your thoughts – I love hearing about how God’s words are living and active and reaching you, or just generally about what inspires you!

Prices vary depending on number of words, quality and size of print/stock, and whether or not you’d be happy for your artwork to be available to others. I also love trading, particularly with other artists, so please feel free to make an offer – let’s talk soon!

I’m currently taking a break from custom orders (from August 2016) – stay tuned as I hope to pick this up again soon!

P.S. Many of the photos on are the work of the lovely Amy from Bluebird and Finch Photography. You can see more of her work here.
