In the year 2001, I had my first encounter with the living God. Up until then I was using my talent for my own worldly purposes. I realized then that my talents must be used for God. There was a revival inside my heart to reach out to the disheartened younger generation as a Christian in the workforce.
I realized then that these drawings were one way of expressing God's heart. That is why I started to make postcard drawings. Then suddenly one day, God gave me a vision. I was painting God's pictures on tall buildings and I saw the Holy Spirit touching the heart of so many people. They were repenting and returning back to the Lord. He has opened many doors since then and the work is in progress.
Let us look at our surroundings. In major cities we see unholy pictures and words expressed through tempting advertising billboards. How little of God's pictures and messages we have in our society compared to those! We are facing spiritual warfare without us even realizing that we are under attack in our daily lives. In a society perfectly planned out by Satan to destroy us, God is calling out to us.
Arise! See the light!
In order to wake up the city, we must first start with our culture. My vision is for all the states, city by city, to raise billboards and buildings painted with the glory of God. And when God looks down from heaven onto earth and sees the paintings, it will be like a praising art gallery only God can see. I hope through these paintings God's anointing will flow down and rest on every living soul. All honor and praise to God.
As pastors spread the gospel through their messages, I hope prophetic art will express the living God's heart through us who are anointed with his glory.
I want to be more than an artist. I want to change our cultural atmosphere so it contains good, positive energy from the Spirit through the design of objects we wear and use everyday, such as clothing and jewelry. My vision is that those who wear my designs will see positive change in their lives, whether they bought them knowing their spiritual connotations or not. I want to expand my business and use my designs to give people clothes that have an uplifting message that can heal our negative culture and give positive change through the Holy Spirit.

"Janet's art changes the atmosphere of the environment wherever it is present—whether in the
office or in the home."
— Bobby Conner, Eagles View Ministries
"Janet is one of the most sensitive, excellent, and prophetically anointed creative artists that I have met in this generation. I believe that what comes forth springs from excellence that is internal . . . it is not just a skill, but about a deep intimacy with God."
— James Goll, Encounters Network

intimacy with Him!"
— Jerame Nelson, Living at His Feet Ministries
"I respect and have a holy jealousy of [Janet's] artistic process. What God has done for her by giving her the ability to paint in her own unusual style with so much talent and anointing is a marvel. When she paints in our services, I watch her paintings come to life, and worship through watching her process . . .
She has taken Christian art to a new level.
