Artist bio

Hi my name is Jeanette and I'm a visionary artist, wife and mother of two beautiful kids. I was born and raised in rural Saskatchewan and now reside in Okotoks, Alberta where I've gladly laid down some roots. Early on in my art career I studied under an artist friend who taught techniques in oil painting. I've also increased my gift's capacities through workshops with other Canadian professionals. ​ Most of my subjects are inspirations - pictures that are inspired by the heart of God. I've painted commissions and special requests for others which have carried symbolic meaning for them. I've also done prophetic commissions where I'm lead by the Spirit to paint what's being revealed to me for that person. ​ I will always give to society what God inspires me to put on canvas. It's my desire for people to be drawn into the beauty of the Creator.


Standing On The Promises



Artist Statement

This painting was painted live at a Gospel Music festival. Most of my artwork is done in a studio setting so this one was a little different for me. A little out of my comfort zone and a little more free flowing. I went in with an idea to paint feet standing on a bible. The lights were turned off during the musical festival so I couldn't really tell what colours I was using while painting. I was surprised at the vibrancy of the painting when they turned the lights back on after the music festival. This painting still fits in to my other body of work as it reveals God's nature!

How it fits into contest

I feel this painting fits Ephesians 6:13 and Ephesians 6:15. Verse 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand.Stand firm then..15..with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

Our feet standing on God's word fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace.

The definition of standing is to remain firm, steadfast; to take up or maintain position.

In a world of doubt and uncertainty we have the promises of God to stand on.
