Soul Painting

Soul Painting is a spiritual journey which uses the acrylic painting process to help you listen to your inner voice, or God! It is how I make a personal connection with my Creator. By slowing down and breaking the painting process into smaller steps, you will become aware of your inner voice that has always been there to guide you.

During the summer of 2012, I was given a gift, Brave Intuitive Painting by artist Flora Bowley that changed my life! By reading her book, and by taking her “Bloom True” workshop, I found my artistic passion and God given talent. With the completion of my first acrylic painting, I realized I could hear the prompting of God from my soul, as I painted. Creating in this manner took on a whole new meaning for me. It became a personal time of worship and fellowship with God. Each new painting increased my desire to illustrate the entire Bible, that passion continues to drive me until this day.

My painting sessions begin with a word of prayer asking God to fill me up and to speak to me as I create. As I am led through my painting process, I rarely know what I am painting. All of my soul paintings begin with random mark making techniques. I continue to listen as I am directed to use a variety of tools and a rainbow of colors.

After applying many layers of markings, God begins to reveal objects in the graffiti. It is then that I get my first idea of what the painting is meant to become. I continue to listen as I add details to the objects that have been shown to me. When the painting is completed, I ask God for the title. I am led through a bible study in search of a corresponding verse. Not only am I led to the verse, God helps me write the positive affirmations, for each painting, that are given to the buyers at the time of purchase.

With this in mind, there are not that many artists, like myself, who paint stories from the Bible using this method. I am led by faith to paint my one of a kind creations. Most spiritual artists begin with their idea or bible scripture first prior to beginning their painting. For this reason, I am now considered a renowned Soul Painter, creating 60 paintings since 2012, selling my art and teaching others.

Today, both virtually and from an array of locations, I am thrilled to teach workshops, offer painting lessons, host paint parties and soon to lead retreats..

My Soul Painting Process

All of my soul paintings begin with random mark making techniques. This is a picture of my first few layers. The manner in which I begin each painting is always different.

At this point, I have continued the random mark making. This is the layer in which I begin to add recognizable imagery that are special to me. Often I use African Adinkra symbols to enrich the painting with meaning. Eventhough this is an important layer, most of this imagery and symbols may be covered up with other layers of marks.

Finished Painting

This is a picture of the finished painting. After 32 or more layers, the result is a finished Bible Story. I seek God's guidance for the title and the positive affirmation that will accompany the painting.
