My name is Norohasina Harris. I was born in Madagascar, grew up in France, studied in Paris and in Sacramento (USA) and have been living and working in the UK for the past 20 years! I am married and have 2 beautiful children, Joel and Chloe! I gave my life to Jesus about 25 years ago, while studying in Sacramento and have been since pursing God’s purposes and plans for my life with the French language as my Moses’ rod to perform miracles in my Egypt and part the Red seas in my life. After a full season of teaching, interpreting, directing French schools and serving God in various ways (pastoring, leading worship, composing songs, dancing and leading cell groups) God told me that it was time to throw away the old tea bag in my teapot and to make tea with a fresh new one!
God surprised me at the start of this year (2016), reviving a dormant gift for painting. Last time I remember painting was about 30 years ago as I copied this Modigliani painting in my art class!
I had kept a love and interest for painting, but didn’t have any time at all to pursue it. But 2 years ago, as I attended a big worship rally, I spent some time in the painters’ corner and found myself powerfully touched by some of the paintings there, especially by a Lion painting. That was my first experience of worship through painting. I received many prophecies and activation in prayer meetings and started feeling the tangible touch of the Holy Spirit in my hands. One day, my daughter asked me to paint a cherry tree in blossom with her. I reluctantly picked up some paint and a brush to paint with her….and I haven’t stopped since.
I wanted to paint what was in my heart: God’s plan of salvation, my love for Him, the beauty of His creation. I then started to paint the revelations I received. I was surprised to see how my paintings would touch and inspire people and soon realised that God wanted to use them to minister renewal, restoration, hope, joy, love, life to His people. Out of obedience, I started to exhibit them and to continue to paint what He’s laying in my heart!
It’s been an exciting journey, feeling the changes taking place in me, as a pregnant woman would see her belly growing daily and seeing how the people around me were influenced by it. Painting has become a new way of evangelising too! And I know that it is only the beginning!
I pray and hope that my paintings will impart to you more love and faith in God our father and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour!
With love and prayers,
