MISSION + STORY
At Canvases for Christ, we know that you want to experience the truth & power found in God's word. To do that, you need to surround yourself with scripture, and what better way than with beautiful & personal art. The problem is when we don't have God's word surrounding our daily lives, the enemy creeps in and feeds us lies. Lies that we often believe, making us feel unloved, broken, and hopeless because we forget what God says about us. We believe we have a real enemy who wants us to forget the truth & power found in Scripture. We understand that it is easy to forget what God says, especially in the moments we need it most. This is why we created Canvases for Christ - to display Christ's love through beautiful & personal art that gives life, encourages, & better equips us for the calling that the Lord has for our lives (2 Timothy 3:17).
Here's how we do it:
1. Find a canvas that you love, or get custom art!

I believe that we are created by God & for God. Because we are made in his image, we are image-bearers. Since we are made in the image of a creative God—we may create because our God is creative. But God didn’t create us without purpose, and in a similar way, these canvases are created with the purpose to glorify the Lord—not my artistic ability, but to solely glorify the God who gave me the hands to create & paint FOR Him. I am just His vessel—to paint Canvases for Christ.
“For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.”
- 2 Corinthians 4:5
Hello! About the Artist
Painting is truly my worship. I pray that you can know the joy & love found within the words of scripture through art. God is good & His word is living and breathing! "I am not the artist. I'm just the canvas that He's painting." - Andy Mineo
Canvases for Christ serves as a Business Ministry with the mission and purpose to bring glory to the Kingdom through the beauty and power found in scripture, & within the pretty designs & colors.
I believe that it is important to be a good steward of what the Lord has given me, therefore, a portion of every canvas I sell helps to sponsor my compassion child, Stephanie who lives in El Salvador.
Custom art pieces are my favorite! Its where you can make what you want & I get to design the canvas with you. I paint on canvas, wood, & burlap. I do lots of custom pieces for homes, wedding, birthdays, & whatever you'd like. If you have an idea, I can work with you to design exactly what you want! Click here to order custom art.
Teaching + Speaking
Along with painting canvases, I also teach painting classes! I am a girl’s ministry speaker & I have been blessed to be able to speak at many girls’ conferences already, including some in Asheville, NC and in Cleveland, TN. So, if you are a church or girls ministry, I would love the opportunity to come speak to you! Or if you just want me to come & teaching a painting class!

I started painting scripture on canvases back in high school & I wanted some cute décor in my room & as presents for friends & family members! From then on, the Lord has revealed this gift of mine to paint & then I started Canvases for Christ. He has taught me to listen to his voice & not my own when it comes to painting.
In the past two years, the Lord has done much more than I could have ever dreamed. As of May 2019, I was able to launch Canvases for Christ as an official business!
I am just holding on the paint brush & letting the Lord guide me! Join me in prayer over what is to come & as the Lord continues to teach me his ways & his voice in my paintings.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
