What is Worship Painting?
Worship Painting is simply exactly what it sounds like, worshiping God while painting. It is equivalent to singing or raising hands or dancing to worship the King of Kings. It is another expression of how we can commune with Him and show Him how much we love Him.
How it works: I first pray and ask the Lord if He has something He would like for me to paint. Then, if He shows me something, I paint exactly that. He usually gives me the interpretation where I can share with people what God is speaking through the painting.
There are many different types and ways of worship painting that I am currently writing about in my book, "Art in the Church." [Working Title]. Stay tuned for the release date!
Born and raised in Florida, Kelly started drawing when she was three years old and hasn't stopped since. This led her to Sarasota where she graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design in May of 2010 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts.
Kelly paints live during worship services at churches and other Christian environments. She also speaks about what God is conveying through her paintings and illustrations. She is currently serving with her husband, Jon, as full time missionaries to France.
She and Jon are also the proud parents of their two adorable sons, Caleb and Cadence, and two mischievious cats.
