The Ecclesiastical Heraldry of Andrew Stewart Jamieson

A little over a month ago we featured some of the illuminated artwork of Andrew Stewart Jamieson and today I thought our readers might be interested to see some of his ecclesiastical heraldry more specifically. In fact, Jamieson's hand painted heraldic works are amongst some of his best known and most sought after works. A bit of background from Jamieson's website:
Established in 1983, ASJ has become synonymous with hand-painted bespoke luxury, beauty, creativity and skill. Careful details are minutely realised and every beautifully expressed line is a testimony to his passion and dedication to excellence.


​Using carefully selected and prepared materials and traditional techniques developed over a millennium, and crafted to the highest specification with a time honoured tradition of excellence, his service prides itself on discretion, exclusivity and craftsmanship when designing and painting the finest coats of arms for private and corporate needs. ASJ's exceptional artworks set the world standard for bespoke heraldic art.


The art works he produces are reflective of this highly specialised training and over three decades of professional experience working with institutions such as Her Majesty's College of Arms, Her Majesty's Crown Office and the Order of Malta. His patrons have included royalty and heads of noble houses, the Catholic Church, orders of chivalry, corporations, publishers, livery companies, the military and numerous private patrons and collectors from around the globe.
In recent years there has been a revival of interest in ecclesiastical heraldry in liturgical expression. It is a tradition we have featured here before many times before (see for example, The Rich Tradition of Ecclesiastical Heraldry in the Liturgical ArtsExamples of the Traditional Art of Heraldry on Vestments and The Ecclesiastical Heraldry of Guiseppe Quattrociocchi) and it is a revival that extends well beyond prelates to include clerics more generally, eager to recapture the elegance and nobility of this tradition.

For that reason, we here at LAJ are always happy to feature the work of active ecclesiastical heraldists, particularly so that interested parties might have an idea of where they can turn if they would like to commission a work.

With that in mind, here is a small selection of the ecclesiastical work of Andrew Stewart Jamieson:
