Art by Christine Council
let me be a paintbrush, dipped in Love...
painting your heart's pictures,
giving others eyes to see."
Christine Council is a prophetic artist, writer and speaker born and raised in North Carolina. She has a call to the nations as a mother, with a strong desire to see others know Jesus personally and intimately. Saved in 1988, from a sinful lifestyle, she immediately had an unction to start painting. Without any formal training, she was soon commissioned to do professional portraits, and later developed a local art school. In 2011 she stepped out by faith and ministered with art for the first time; creating God inspired personal "prophetic portraits" at a Christian conference.
A face to face encounter with Jesus dramatically changed her body of work. He commissioned her to begin to paint prophetically corporately, and not long after, invitations came for her to speak to others about her work. She has traveled throughout the USA and regularly ministers to believers all over the world through the internet. When she's not on the road, sharing her heart, or her art, you can find her barefoot in her garden, at the local lake walking her dog Cody, or out and about with her camera capturing God's creation.
“For an artist, everything we do is art, because it all comes from the heart.”
~ Christine Council
"Visuals are powerful. They say things that words cannot say. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures reach places that words may fail to reach, penetrating the closed vault of our hearts and allowing us to see things that words only obscure."
