Prophetic Art

Can art be used to minister to people?

Julia Powell paints. She believes that the inspiration for her work comes from God and in particular His desire to demonstrate His love for all people. Julia claims that her art comes out of her faith and she claims:

“I wouldn’t say my art is realist. I also wouldn’t say that I’m an abstract artist. In fact, I would say I’m not an ‘Artist’.

I’m a worshipper. I worship in Spirit and Truth and acrylics.”

In these two films Julia discusses more about prophetic art and the way she believes her paintings have ministered to people.
