Then he said to them, "Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

Nehemiah 8:10

Q. You call yourself a Prophetic Artist, what does this mean?

Let us start with what I am not. I am not painting the future, or prophesying the future to people through my art. To get an accurate definition of prophecy or the prophetic, we have to look at what God says it is.

“For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” – Rev 19:10. Thus, I am painting the testimonies of Jesus. His goodness, His love, His nature. Furthermore, 1 Cor 14:3 provides a beautiful and accurate definition. I paint pictures to edify, encourage, and console people with the love of Christ. Prophetic art is also an art that is born in heavenly places. We are made to sit in and rule from Heavenly places with Christ. It is when you partner with the Holy Spirit to create creative artwork. It is born out of intimacy with the lover of your soul – Jesus Christ. Thus it holds life and speaks life. Because He is the artist and you are the brush. The Father can use these pictures to speak deep into the audience’s heart without miscommunication – without words.
