The prophetic artist creates art as a spiritual connection between the viewer and God, aiming to enable a direct divine encounter and personal experience of His goodness.

I believe artists shape the world. I am dedicated to releasing spiritually powerful art into our communities and culture. Leading DaySpring Church creative arts worship team for eight years birthed a passion to motivate, inspire, and raise “an army of artists”. God-artists! Join us as together we launch people into a closer intimate relationship with God through art.

My story, is your story

I believe prophetic artists have a unique style of intuitive, spontaneous painting that has a significant impact in the spirit of many people. When we paint in worship, we draw the audience into a divine encounter as the artwork evolves on the canvas on stage. The paintings have a life of their own. Over the years they have inspired thousands of people in a closer intimate relationship with God. A relationship that ultimately changes the world. Art carries a message, always personal, always directly to your heart.

As a church, DaySpring has intentionally pursued what role art plays within the worship service. When senior pastor Narelle Crabtree asked me in 2005, “What do you think of painting in the church service?” it opened the pathway for a creative arts team. I happened to be the right person, at the right time, willing to experiment along with my pastors, who had always imagined art had a significant role in their church. God had placed in me a combination of skills, experience, curiosity and temperament that enabled the gathering together of a community of creative people. As an art worship team, we each made ground-breaking contributions as we pursued what God was doing with art, and surrendered ourselves to the Spirit with live painting during the church service. When we started … it wasn’t yet labelled prophetic art.
