Product description

Over a year in the making, this design has been a labour of love and part of my own personal journey. Based on the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew’s gospel, and using the lyric from a well-known song, ‘Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning’ is a plea from the heart and a reminder that it’s important to maintain intimacy with Jesus so that we are ready for his return.

The print features a golden jug pouring out golden oil into a clay oil lamp, which is lit with a flame. The words ‘Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning’ are written in brush script font at the bottom centre of the design. 

The artistic style of this print is a blend of realistic oil painted effect and my contemporary, unique doodles. The layer of doodles include various images, words and scripture references that I believe have relevance to ‘keep me burning’ and the meaning of oil in this passage. 

- Available in A4 and A3 sizes.

- Printed on pro lustre photographic paper, which is semi-gloss, bringing out the luminosity of the colours.

- Frame not included

- Dispatched Royal Mail 1st class in a hard backed rigid envelope for protection. 

Disclaimer: Every effort has been made to photograph the print as accurately as possible, however, colours may vary slightly to the images shown.

Doodle Art by Sarah Clottey

Detailed doodle designs embedded with scripture and relevant images, printed on cards, prints and gifts.

Hello and welcome to my shop! I’m Sarah, and I’m so glad you’ve dropped by to have a look at my designs. 

My unique portrayal of scripture through themed doodles and typography is a fun and interesting way to meditate on God’s word. In the same way that one would learn new things upon reading the same scripture multiple times, those who view my artwork will see different elements each time and gain new insights or inspiration.

Naturally, I pay great attention to detail, which is reflected in the artwork I produce. When inspired by a scripture, I often seek out other scriptures of the same theme and depict them through images and words. I also enjoy using bright and bold colours, believing that they add even more life to the Word that is packed full of life already.

My journey here began with no intention to turn my artwork into a business, until I was encouraged by friends and family that there was a demand for my designs! Shortly after getting married, my husband discovered some of my ‘doodle’ drawings and he couldn’t understand why they were hidden away in a box. He liked the style so much that he asked me to produce the branding and cover artwork for his music releases, which propelled my work into the public domain. What followed was a commission by a friend, and my doodle style entered new territory, from simple black pen on paper, to watercolour and pen, and now into the digital realm.

My unique doodles are not limited to what you see in this shop. I take great pleasure in using the aforementioned gifts and skills to create bespoke pieces which are not merely designs with a personalised element, but unique pieces in their own right. I enjoy being stretched to create work I would not naturally do if left to my own devices. I believe personalised art should speak to individuals on a deeper level, and my doodles enable this. So if you’re interested in a customised piece, please get in touch!

All of my products are stocked or printed at my home in Buckinghamshire where I live with my husband and two beautiful, young girls.
