  • Break out of your box! (Art Video included)

  • Developing deeper convictions & decision-making capacity

    The virtue of our convictions and decisions are being tested as the world shakes.

  • What do you see in your backyard?

    I never get tired of looking out from my timber deck into an adjacent park, shown in the photo. I see the fertile, tree-lined landscape. I see many people passing by getting out to enjoy the sun. It’s awesome.

  • How to Preach from Paintings

    God gave me a vision to paint this oil work mid-2019 and I completed it by the first week of lock down in 2020 due to covid 19 in Melbourne.

  • Disciples that endure to the end

    Can you remember a time in your life when people globally have experienced such consistent times of duress?

  • You can belong

    Here is a picture I painted of the Geelong foreshore. Families love to congregate there and soak up the sun and sea while hanging out together. It’s a picture of belonging. God laid this one on my heart for you all for several months prior to this showing.

  • I will be with you always

    How comforting it is to know that Jesus promised to be with us. And not just sometimes, but he said, “I will be with you always.” (Matthew Chapter 28, verse 20)

  • Passing the pressure test without the cracks!

    What pressures are assailing you? Has wear and tear due to trials been causing distinct emotional fatigue and cracks?  Difficulties due to your finances, marital issues, kids, covid19, ministry dead ends, etc...?

  • Are you holding on to your keys?

    God has given us the keys of his kingdom to release heaven on earth. When used they give us a wonderful spiritual foretaste and appetiser to Jesus returning to fully establish his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, and to completely eradicate darkness.

  • “You’re in position for such a time as this.”

    As an artist and pastor, I want my paintings to have a certain impressionistic beauty, while also carrying the prophetic voice of the spirit of God to encourage people.
