As a Spirit Artist I have found the drawings I do have a big impact in my mediumship readings. They certainly prove the continuity of life after the transition of death. Spirit drawing is a rare talent, and the portraits of deceased loved ones often astonish both myself and the person I am reading. Before a reading starts I do not know who I am going to connect to, nor do I have any photos or visual reference to the sitter’s loved ones in spirit. When I start connecting with spirit during a reading, I’ll get a glimpse here and there of the shape of their face, and if they were heavy or if they were thin, but I don’t always get the whole image. I get the information as I draw. Sometimes I don’t have a face in my mind (clairvoyance) at all the pencil goes where it wants to go.
I have come to realize I work with a few different artists in spirit. My style of drawing can change from portrait to portrait. When I first began blending with spirit to create these faces, the drawing was awkward. I spent a good amount time filling up sketchbooks practicing drawing from spirit. Each time a new artist in spirit joins me, I have to do the same process.
I remember reading for somebody that I had never met before; we had only contacted each other through emails. During her reading, I drew her boyfriend who was Asian – I had no idea that he was Asian before the reading. She was amazed, and I was amazed! There are times who I am describing from spirit is not who I am drawing. During one reading I described Tony’s matriarchal grandmother very specifically. I drew a masculine face, much to my chagrin. Tony told me that was his uncle. He later brought me pictures of his grandmother and uncle. We were amazed. Tony had recognized his uncle with only the drawing to look at!
Here are some of examples of spirit portraits and corresponding photos.
Aimee Kent, had recently lost her mother to cancer, and she consulted a medium named Mariah to try to connect with her deceased mother. “Mariah told me that my mother was going to send my great-grandmother to me soon,” said Aimee, who didn’t really know what that meant. A few months later, Aimee came to see me and, during the reading, Aimee’s mother came through with messages for Aimee, but the portrait I drew was definitely not of her mother.
“Nancy was talking to me about my mom, but she was drawing somebody completely different, and I was kind of dumbfounded for a minute,” remembers Aimee. “And then the light went off in my head and I thought ‘Oh my God, that is my great-grandmother.’ So my mother did what she said that she was going to do after all. When I got home, I found the only picture that I have of my great grandmother, and that picture and Nancy’s drawing were absolutely identical. It was spot on. Nancy is very gifted – I was just blown away!”
“Hi Nancy, I here is a picture of my mom and a picture of the picture that you drew on Monday. I really enjoyed Monday. Thank you so much, Tom.”
After a reading I appreciate and depend on my clients to send me photos of their loved ones. I love to see the similarities, to learn from the comparisons and share them with you!
I read for somebody that I had never met before, Kayla, who lived miles away out West. We had only contacted each other through emails. During her reading, I drew her boyfriend who was Asian – I had no idea that he was Asian before the reading. She was amazed, and I was amazed!”
Cindy and her daughter Susan came for a reading. They were both grieving for the loss of someone close to them. I did not know who they wished me to connect with. I brought Cindy’s sister in at first but soon after the reading a vision of a woman came to me wearing a scarf. She turned out to be Cindy’s daughter.
Susan wrote: “Thanks again for yesterday. I’ve attached a few photos of my sister with her scarf on to compare to the drawing. My mom & I were both very satisfied with the reading, her especially. I made the appointment after she opened up to me about questioning her faith …Well, you delivered in a big way. It is exactly what she needed to hear…I will be recommending you to people I know and will probably be back for my own reading.”

In memory of Zach. If you cover half of the face (the right side) and view the left half of the face, you will see a clear likeness of Zack. Cover the left side of the face and you will see another face. A second spirit was coming through this reading, later confirmed to be Zach’s grandfather. Zach’s mom was comforted to know Zach was with his grandfather in heaven.
