Some receive a message from the Bible, from a sermon, or even just a kwing what to write or create. Some have dreams from God, or see images in visions.

Laurie A. Stasi is a writer and Christian artist who teaches about prophetic and revelation art. Her artwork has been exhibited in several states, and on tour in churches. When she began studying art, she would know what God wanted her to paint. A few years later, Laurie began having visions and dreams while seeking more of the presence of the Lord. She discovered that this is not uncommon. Laurie found that there are thousands of other Christian artists who are releasing what the Lord had shown them in their art, creating revelation art. Laurie felt God led her in gathering information to share in SHADOW PAINTER. As a teacher of revelation art, she feels called to help prophetic artists grow in their art, in understanding the prophetic, and to advance God's kingdom through the arts. Laurie believes God has a message to release through His sons and daughters in this generation, and she wants to help train prophetic visionaries to be equipped for the Lord's work.
