Start Your Prophetic Art Adventure with the 'Painting with God' eBook.
Your personal journey into supernatural creativity, through art
What is prophetic art? Why do it? What's it's role in your life?
The answers to these questions are still being written and explored in this new form of worship. It merges art, theology, and our personal walk with God in ways that just weren't around in the past.
This was my challenge. It was all new.
So I set sail, on a three-year journey, into uncharted waters and put down brushes long enough to pen my experience into the book: Painting With God.
Part conversation. Part intimate journey. Part unanswered questions.
It's the most vulnerable story of prophetic art to date. My hope is that it inspires you to start yours.
The questions around what prophetic art is and why you'd do it took me on a three-year journey or ‘apprenticeship’ to find out. This book is part of what I learned along the way.
In the first year, I researched what it meant, which included traveling to Bethel and New Zealand seeking answers. I managed to gain some understanding of the types of prophetic art and what it means and what it isn't supposed to be.
The second year focused on the practical aspects of worship art. I painted prophetically every week for 52 weeks. I refined a lot of processes and learned how to produce a reasonable image quickly, and I learned a lot about live painting, sometimes known as performance art.
The third year was more about exploring the mysteries of the supernatural and the prophetic. It involved studying with Gary and Sarah Morgan's School of the Prophets.
The comments in this book are from an arts background, rather than a prophetic or theological background. I believe that God wants to redeem the arts and to do this, the standard of art produced by Christians must improve to be able to be noticed in a wider arena by recognised influencers. Just as Christian music has gone from a single organ played in a dusty cavern with well-meaning reedy voices to world-famous performances such as that done by Bethel and Hillsong, prophetic art needs to continually improve so that it can justifiably compete on a world stage.
This book is an attempt to shed some light on the field from an artist's perspective.
I discovered Grace Bailey’s book, Painting with God, on a weekend when I was desperately praying for God to give me direction on which path to take. I have been encouraged to take my creative talents seriously and to seek how best to live a satisfying creative filled life with God at the centre.

Endorsements From Creative Thought Leaders:
In this book. Grace demystifies the process of prophetic art while sharing her journey, thoughts. and feelings. She simplifies the process with practical and spiritual applications that emerging prophetic artists can apply.
We have had Grace paint at several of our worship schools over the last 3 or 4 years and have seen first hand the impact of her gift on individuals and atmospheres alike. Grace’s humility allows the Lord to minister powerfully through her art form.
A great balance between theology/life history/practical advice all seasoned with hard won experience.

Back in 2009, God called me to ‘Go to the Nations and Raise Up an Army Of Artists to Reveal His Glory in the Earth”. Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with artists around the world who share this same passion.
