Wilderness Grace

Hand painted custom bibles and journals with purpose, painted with passion by Abbie Nicholson

My name is Abbie Nicholson and I'm a full-time student at Regents Theological College who loves Jesus and is always in pursuit of joy! I create hand painted custom bibles and personalised journals to help others grow in their relationship with God and go deeper with Him. 

I love to make the outside covers of the Word of God as personal and beautiful as the words on the inside!

It all started with my own humble custom bible painted back in August 2017 on a whim before starting the adventure of bible college. I'd never thought of painting as one of my talents before, but every time I sat down with a paintbrush to paint for others I felt joy and each time the design turned out better than I could have imagined. As my confidence grew, so did my dreams and doors began to open to make this little talent of mine something that could support me as well as bless others. Every time I create a hand painted bible or journal I'm reminded of where I started and how I certainly couldn't be doing this without my God beside me. Everything I do is for him and I am blessed to bless others through the talent He's given me.

I have never had any formal training, instead, I'm fuelled by passion and strength only God can give me and have painted items for all occasions - birthday gifts, wedding gifts, baptism gifts and confirmation gifts.

Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel!" - Jeremiah 31:2-4 ESV
