Drawing or painting the likeness of someone who has passed to the Higher side of life is Spirit Art whereas Psychic Art is the production of inspired imagery; for instance, magical beings, elementals or energy swirls.
Here is a selection of Spirit portraits drawn during public demonstrations or private sittings.
Hover your mouse over the pictures....
Australia July 2014
The Spirit people impress me to draw many faces, often in rapid succession. The early drawings were done in pastels but these are quite messy when working in a public demonstration.
I don't see the resemblance until after a picture is drawn and maybe get a chance to take a photograph. Lee and his aunt in Spirit certainly share a strong likeness of each other.
This Norwegian lady's aunt communicated during a private sitting and wished to be remembered.
Demonstration at Seaford Spirits 2010
This gentleman's brother died in a submarine during WWII. You can see the strong family resemblance.
Losing his life during conflict many years previously, he was never far away from his brother's side.
This learned gentleman had some encouragement for his granddaughter.

August 2012 Private sitting
It's always a pleasure to pass on love and support from the Spirit world.
Jorge is a gifted Spirit photographer and was the President of Stockwell Church, London when this picture was drawn for him. He was thrilled to see this lively Spirit child who helps him in his work.
Robin Hodson had to laugh when his old art teacher came through!
ROBIN'S ART TEACHER
It's true - they can still take an interest in what we are doing.
It was Peter's first time at a demonstration and wasn't he surprised! His ex-father-in-law jokingly complained about his funeral amongst other things.
I love to see photographs of the people drawn during sittings or demonstrations.
Peter recognised the dry humour as well as the likeness!
This sensitive young woman in Spirit wasn't a nun, but training to be a nurse. She took her own life and came through during a public demonstration to reunite with her dear friend more than 50 years later!
The young man who came for a reading got more than he bargained for when the missing link to the Russian side of his family came forward with valid information.
Oslo 2015 private sitting
What a howl this man's middle-aged girlfriend let out when he popped in for a chat.
Just one of many Spirit people who wish to be drawn during my quiet doodling at home.
This lady passed with breast cancer.
SKETCH IN PROGRESS
During a demonstration, I start at the top and work my way downwards.
Spirit Art drawn with a Wacom Intuos tablet. It works just the same and produces distinctive pictures.
This was one of my very first Spirit pictures and it came unexpectedly.
Doodling during a lecture, a fellow classmate leaned over and told me that this was a picture of her friend's daughter, Amy, who had died recently. A wave of love washed over me when Amy was recognised - a Thank You from Spirit.
Of course, I gave my colleague the sketch to give to Amy's mother.
Digital Spirit Art
Spirit portraits are drawn on a Wacom Tablet with sensitive stylus and the image seen by everyone on a projector screen.
This technique is being modified so I can draw as quickly with the computer software as I do with good old pencil and paper on an easel.
Prepared skin tone, hair and eye colour palettes will help achieve full colour, life-like pictures in just a few minutes, which can then be emailed to the recipient.
Jorge's Spirit Helper
I cannot deny the Spirit helpers an opportunity to connect with their medium.
Jorge is an exceptionally gifted Spirit photographer and this lively Spirit boy wanted to be known to him.
Over the years, I have drawn many members of Spirit Teams, all working hard to progress a medium's work and often popping up at just the right time. We can all do with a bit of a boost every now and then.
This gentle soul made his presence known to me in 2005 and has remained a constant source of loving energy.
I am aware of him whenever I work with clients during healing sessions and he invariably washes me in vibrations of the most beautiful deep amethyst hue.
