About Me

Hello,

I'M Jonathan

In the Spring of 2019, I discovered the New Message from God, which was like meeting the wise old teacher who I always needed to guide me in the world but could never find in the world. From that discovery I experienced a revelation about who I am and how to serve the world with my art.

I've also discovered a few modalities that I use with my art practice, such Human Design, permaculture, and maps. These modalities enhance my work which is to create visions of what it looks like for us to live in harmony with nature in our cities and in our intimate dwellings, so that my audience feels inspired to build a better world.

I've been approached by visionary business owners, non-profit leaders, who have skills in building sustainable neighborhoods, but they don't have a creative partner who understands them and can capture their ideas in works of art that speak to their soul.

Not only do I help visionaries capture their core message, but I help them communicate it clearly to their communities, so they feel inspired and empowered to build it together.   

Doctor Marion Pierson, co-founder of Mo Hives KC, a non-profit that revitalizes blighted neighborhoods by transforming them into bee pollinator habitats said of my work, “Amazing artist to work with! You just give him the idea and Jonathan will bring even the most complex vision to life!”   

Ever since I was 4 years old and my mother started dropping stacks of paper and crayons for me to scribble with on the floor, I’ve been obsessed with art making. But after I graduated from the Kansas City Art institute in 2010 and faced the reality of needing to serve the world with my art in order to survive, I lost the initial excitement that I once had to make art for its own sake and started wondering about the greater meaning of my life.

I couldn't just stimulate people with pretty pictures, I needed to find something important to do with my that would really help the world. So for 9 years, I worked in undemanding jobs, mostly working as a cook, so that I had a decent amount of free time for soul-searching and sampling guidance from the worlds teachers. I found a lot of helpful modalities from business leaders, spiritual teachers, and ecological stewards, but they couldn't give way to access my own deepest inspiration for making art.

So my 33rd birthday, in the spring of 2029, I sat alone in my dark apartment in downtown Kansas City, and scrolled through youtube to try and bury the deepest depression I've ever known.

But right then, the angels must have heard my sincere cry for help when I stumbled up on a video of someone talking about the New Message from God. Every word struck me. So I went to the New Message website and felt something very strange but good. As I scrolled through the website, I found hundreds of pages of teachings that made it clear to me that this was real, and I've never felt that way about anything. It felt so very familiar, yet I've never experienced anything that felt that familiar in the world ...interesting.

The New Message from God contains a curriculum that teaches us how to access our inner knowing, the greater intelligence that God has placed within each person, and I am learning to access this greater intelligence within me. I can't control it, because it greater than the universe and I'm just one person on a planet, but I can experience it and follow its guidance, which is more empowering and freeing than I anyone could ever imagine, but yet it's our home, it's the essence of who we are.

If I had a super power, it would be to create heaven on earth. I would make art that shows what it looks like to live in harmony on this planet. To capture rain water, transform our waste into fertilizer, to build homes that can grow food, to retrofit our buildings with gardens and plant-holding structures, these are some of the things I feel called to create, to transform the legacy of the old concrete jungle into a jungle city of food and nourishment for a strong civilization united around the preservation of our world.

The main curriculum that the New Message from God teaches is called Steps to Knowledge, which is a free online book that has had the biggest impact on me, because it’s the only thing that's enabled me to motivate myself to make art for a greater purpose than just something pretty to look at.

So I can make art that not only looks good, but shares an important message about where the world is going, which provides a greater context that is real and not what is preferred, so we all have a source of inspiration for our creations that no idea could ever touch.

If I could be like Anthony Bourdain and travel to gardens around the world to collect useful tips and inspiration from the folks who are building our future, I would take that back to my home town and ask my neighbors how we can create garden districts in our city, as examples of how people can stand up to the challenges that we face in food, water, shelter and energy.    

The New Message from God reveals many truths about what challenges we now face, due to human negligence and lack of maturity. While we face Great Waves of Change, our world is also emerging into the Greater Community of worlds, and an alien intervention is now underway from resource explorers who are taking advantage of our weak and divided condition and seeking to use us as slaves to secure the remaining resources of this world for their purposes.

As you can see, there is a much greater context that the world faces that inspires me to make art for more important matters than just a pretty picture on the wall, but which all the skills I've built in making pretty pictures and now go to work for a greater purpose. We must unite to preserve our planet and become a free race in the Greater community.

This is my attempt to serve the reality facing us all, and I look forward to taking this journey with you.

Inspiration

Through meditation and reading the New Message from God, I receive artistic visions that respond to the challenges we face.

Techniques

I primarily use oil painting, pencil and ink drawing, as well as watercolor to capture my ideas with precision and realism.

career highlights

I graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a degree in animation, thinking I would create moving paintings, but that proved to be too challenging as a solo artist.

So I eventually settled on painting and drawing, in order to convey my ideas with maximum precision.
