Location St. Louis, Missouri
Introduction There are many effective “prayer languages”, including verbal prayer, music, dance, prophetic actions, and art. A called and anointed artist/intercessor can create art that serves as an altar, a contact point between heaven and earth. While learning about spiritual mapping and prophetic prayer actions from such apostles and intercessors as George Otis Jr., Abu Bako, and Robert Hagan, I began to see that intercession is profoundly tied to the land and our physical reality. The content of my art has many influences. I am interested in parallel dimensions, gates into the spirit realm, and theories of space and time. These concepts lead me to a place of wonder and awe at the greatness of God. "’No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. ‘ -– but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God." (1Corinthians 2:9-10) Common visual elements in my art include gates, doors, windows, and altars, usually signified by squares and rectangles. You will also see a lot of patterns, which refer to the order of God.
