The Coming of Saint Cuthbert

Kathleen Kay

Eighteen years in the waiting; two weeks in the making……

Way back in 1993 Edward and I took our younger son Alex to the Island of Lindisfarne. We explored the Island, the Castle and Lindisfarne Priory.

In the Priory Visitor Centre was an exhibition telling and illustrating the life of Cuthbert and the Lindisfarne Gospels. I was so inspired that, on returning home, I did a sketch design of a small panel that I would, one day, do in enamel.
