Cover Art: ‘Peace is Your Name’ by Jeremy Thomas

Local artist, Jeremy Thomas tells us a little about his latest painting, ‘Peace Is Your Name’ which adorns our cover this month:

“If you are familiar with my work you may have noticed that I often put churches in my paintings, and occasionally a church will be the main focus of an image. I feel an enormous sense of peace when sitting inside a church. St. Mary’s in Abergavenny is a very special place where I love to spend time, which is why there is more than an essence of it in my latest painting, ‘Your Name is Peace’.

As with many of my other paintings there are little details to look out for in this one. The main church windows portray aspects of the Nativity story and some of the smaller windows depict Joachim and Anne, the parents of Mary. There is a hidden white feather drifting with the falling snow and the shop in the foreground is called ‘Simeon’s’ in reference to the biblical character who recognises the baby Jesus as the Messiah.


“I hope that you enjoy this painting and that it helps you to find a little bit of peace this Christmas.”
