The art show at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry features an array of paintings which bring together different faiths, featuring churches, mosques and temples side-by-side.

Her most recent works, painted in oil on sari fabric, mix together references and souvenirs of different faiths from around the world.

Among the things to be spotted in her work are everything from a Buddha statue from the Norwich Buddhist Centre and a Norwich Cathedral snow globe to small stone cows from India and American Indian Navajo Kachina dolls.

Ms Goodden, who is based in Harrow and Derby, said: 'It is about encouraging understanding between faiths. The objects [in my paintings] are getting to know each other and this is what we all need to do.'
