What is inspired Prophetic Painting?
What is Spiritual Art? How do we get inspired to make beautiful Spiritual Art? This is what we talk about here. How to tap into the Holy Spirit and create.
A prophetic Painting is inspired by the Holy Spirit. ‘Prophetic’ could be hearing from God. Prophetic could be passing on what the Holy Spirit impresses. It could be passing on a message to someone. Even a foretelling character could be called prophetic. A prophetic message is characterized by an edifying, exhorting, and comforting background. (1 Cor. 14:3). God uses creative people to share His Blessings and Healing. There are a lot of topics that concern prophetic painting. I have written a book about it and will explain more below.
This book is a key for those who are looking for a way to make God-inspired art. It shows how to build a deep living relationship with God. As a consequence, He will inspire us what kind of artwork we can make. The topics go deeper into what is covered in Marion’s prophetic art classes.
Currently, the book is only available in English. Dutch and German versions are sold out.

- Practical keys to hearing God’s voice
- Spiritual senses, we explain what they are and more
- Prophecying, how do we do that?

‘You brought us freedom in painting, showed us different ways of handling paint, made us responsible for what we paint. The Lord in His wisdom sent you right before we go on outreach. Now we are ready to do it.’

The Holy Spirit is raising up the creative people to work with their specific gifts and talents. Since 2012 Marion helps church leaders to equip prophetic worshippers in their church. She has thoroughly studied and experienced the prophetic realm as well as the creative realm. As a consequence, she turned it into a program that helps creatives grow in their gifts. Her program establishes a healthy foundation for prophetic worship and guides churches to implement the practical side. Group classes of 50+ people can attend a program that covers fundamental training and advanced training. Marion teaches in Dutch, English, and German and uses illustrated presentations. The emphasis of teaching is on activating and releasing the prophetic and creative realm.
These are the topics covered in Prophetic Painting 1
This is a 1-day program. The topics are exercises or instructions where we
We lay a theoretic foundation for prophetic art and painting in a short lecture. We look into what the Bible says about prophecying. This will give us a start to practice prophesying.
Through an image or impression, we make a painting. In doing so we practice painting in a free expressive way. Through exercises, we practice developing our creativity and try out some painting techniques. We work on paper and canvas. Do you want to have a class in your area? Please contact. (1 day)
The follow-up class (2) is for those who attended Class Prophetic Painting 1. On day 2 we are going to work on enhancing our painting techniques and prophesying. We get to know the elements of art and will practice with one of them. The central theme is composition and practicing to receive prophetic impressions. We discuss some possibilities that have to do with composition and will try these out. The starting point is a prophetic image/word that you have received yourself.
Some of the exercises
- practice prophesying and learn to come into freedom
- use an image/word to make a painting
- practice developing your creativity
- cover the subject of Composition
- cover some drawing and painting techniques
- we work on paper and canvas
Testimony of the Church Program
‘People got transformed, encouraged, and equipped to worship God through creativity. I highly recommend Marion as a competent art teacher and prophetic ambassador in the art scene.’

It is this church in Switzerland that Marion visited for consecutive 5 years to teach prophetic painting.
Who is Marion…
Marion is a vivid believer that God is still speaking today. Sometimes through scripture, sometimes through the word of another person, and also through arts. She draws her inspiration from the Holy Spirit when painting. She loves doing this in an expressive and intuitive way, both choosing the subject and expression. She makes both abstract and figurative-designed work. Her techniques are pencil & charcoal, acrylic paint, mixed media, or oil paint. Marion is the founder of the Dutch Art Academy, which aims to build up artists with knowledge, skill, and craftsmanship to make excellent art.
An artist is not just an artist but he or she has received his/her gifts and talents to show the heart of God to the world through the arts.
