Leslie Young Marks
Painter of Truth
Leslie Young Marks is a prophetic/apostolic artist who is known for her profound revelation of God’s Word and her ability to bring it into visual form. She ministers present truth through her painting and written interpretations. Equally as important, Leslie operates in the Issachar anointing and knows the times and seasons in which a specific image is to be released for maximum impact in fulfilling God’s purposes on earth. A Rhema word at the right time, through the right imagery, is a mighty weapon of warfare in God’s arsenal.
A lifetime of self-training and several years of formal instruction in portraiture and classical realism have equipped this artist, with a strong sense of design, highly developed skill, understanding of technique and the use of rich vibrant colors. Her oil and pastel works have been exhibited and won awards in many secular shows and her portraits, paintings and prints are displayed in many private collections internationally. In addition, large murals may be viewed in churches throughout the Atlanta, GA area. Leslie’s artistic gifting together with a unique prophetic anointing has taken her work to an expanded international platform. The prophetic word and apostolic decrees in visual form are transforming the minds of men for the purpose of shifting the hearts of nations to establish the Kingdom of God.
One of the greatest honors of Leslie’s lifetime was the experience of being set in as a seer prophet by Apostle Chuck Pierce through Life Center Ministries, Dunwoody, GA in June of 2008. This marked a new beginning and a new level of power and authority being released through her work. This commission is profoundly impacting the ministry of Visual Praise Prophetic Art by opening great and effectual doors of outreach ministry and raising it to a new level of anointing.
Leslie Young Marks together with her husband, Bill, own and manage Visual Praise Prophetic Art. Bill travels to various events and churches to set up an entire gallery of prophetic art. He speaks at conferences, to teach, train and activate artists and seers in the prophetic through workshops and prophetic ministry, and generally promotes the visual arts. It is their desire to see the kingdom of visual art come into alignment with God’s plans and purposes, under the dominion of our Lord and of His Christ, and to see the glory of God manifested through visual arts.
