Mindi Oaten is a prophetic artist who paints with the acrylic medium. In 2001, she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (with honours) from Western Washington University, concentrating in studio drawing. She took a 14 year break from her art and was drawn back after an encounter with God in her art box and had a dream in the night of an easel. She knew she had to come back to her love of creating art, but would do it for the Lord. Her works can be found with private collectors throughout Canada, the United States, and abroad. She has also painted live during numerous worship events and conferences, as well as teaching sessions on the Prophetic Arts and Worship. She currently lives with her husband and three sons in Cochrane, Alberta, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
Mindi’s spiritual journey began as a child growing up in North Dakota, Alberta, and Washington State, and matured as she encountered the Holy Spirit in a living way as an adult. Mindi continues to work on new collections, commissions, and projects from her studio at home. She has a passion for the Bible, which grew extensively while painting each book of the Bible during a two year project, and desires to reflect the truth, beauty, and glory of God’s word through her art.
