Missy Reno Smith
Artist & Psychic Medium
I create art to show others the incredible world that exists beyond our own. The place we call Heaven is our true home and we will all return there one day. I was blessed with the ability to see and interact with this place and its inhabitants.
As a teenager, I began sketching the Angels and Spirits I saw. While I enjoyed this, it wasn’t until I hit my thirties that I felt a strong pull to create and sell my art professionally. Before that time, I focused more on reading for my clients as a psychic medium. While I do continue to read for clients today, I now spend more time in my art studio than I do in my office.
There are many subjects that I paint and sculpt. Angel, Spirit, Past Life and Soul Portraits are just a few. I also paint Landscapes of Heaven. I enjoy using art as a teaching tool to explain various concepts about God and Creation as well.
I typically strive for Ultra-Realism in order to give the viewer the most accurate representation of Heaven that I can possibly give. There are also times when I feel inspired to create a piece that is more painterly or even abstract. How I paint or sculpt ultimately depends on what I want to say with each piece I create, how I feel when I am creating, and who I am connecting with while I am creating.
When painting or sculpting, I embed messages and Angelic symbols into my artwork. Some of these messages are meant for mankind in general and some of these messages are meant for specific people such as the collector that purchases the artwork (the original purchaser or even someone that will purchase the artwork many years from now). Some of these messages and symbols are found within the patterns in the artwork. Some are partially or completely hidden within the layers of paint and some can only be seen with special tools.
I began my art career painting commissioned artworks only. However, I now paint and sculpt artworks that anyone can purchase as well. Knowing that fine art isn’t something that everyone can easily collect, I also offer fine art reproduction prints, home décor grade prints, and other retail items featuring my art so everyone can display a little piece of Heaven in their home. My work as both a medium and an artist brings me great joy and it is my prayer that it brings joy and comfort to others in this world as well.
