About Me

Jo Cooney

As an author, speaker, mixed media artist and the founder of Creator’s Image, I incorporate my artwork as an interactive tool to train others how to live a victorious life that's free from darkness. 

 

My business started in 2012 with the mission to speak life into Dark Places and to give people hope and awareness that they do not have to live in fear.  There's a passion that drives me in artistic abilities that also develops practical resources which facilitates healing and transformation in the lives of people. 

“I believe when you truly know who you are, you become immoveable, grounded and stable even when the world is crumbling around you.  This is why I am passionate about what I do.”

My Art

I am a mixed media artist, presenting work which reflects my love for nature, imagination and my passion to see lives change. My artwork features mainly watercolor & ink, welcoming viewers to connect deeply with hope and offers a different perspective into the world around them, one where anything is possible.

“I think sometimes we make things too complicated.  Children have such great imagination and are amazed with the world around them.  They find enjoyment in the simple things... things that get overlooked by us."

"It’s what we love about children and what many wish they could return to.  Imagination and simplicity are foundational for living in freedom and open the door to infinite possibilities.”

My First Book

In 2020, I published my first book... My Journey to Prosperity: Living in the Kingdom.  This would be my first literary work available on Amazon. 

“My story started with just journaling the events that were happening in my life at the time.  For example, God lead me every step of the way in buying my car and then there was the accident...  Also there was this transformation that occurred at my job. 

 

The strange thing was, I was writing the book as if I was looking back on the events years later. The reality was, the story hadn’t met its conclusion in the writing of it.  I would piece together the details as they happened and wrote it as if I knew there would be a positive outcome.  I don’t know if that’s ever been done before.

Trying new things is sometimes intentional but no matter how the inspiration comes, to see God's wisdom in it is to know His direction is the way that should be followed.  My excitement is not to resolve in my own understanding but to yield to God's Creative Image."

Milestones

In 2013, I was invited to be a guest on a radio show interviewing me about my art business. My photography was featured in Cairn Magazine and also in the University’s mural, celebrating their centennial milestone.  As a former member of CIVA, Christians in the Visual Arts, I presented my work at the 2015 conference entitled, Between Two Worlds, which was held at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  For this I am so truly thankful.

 

In 2019, my work won first place at the Tinicum Arts Festival in Bucks County, PA and was featured in a solo exhibit at White Stone Gallery, formerly in the Frankford Arts Corridor of Philadelphia. This too, like the above mentioned was a blessing and quite a milestone for my career.

 

In 2020, I hosted my first conference entitled ARISE.  Utilizing my art as an interactive tool, a unique style of teaching foundational principles for victorious living evolved.  This method would prove to be a good foundation for presenting in future conferences.

 

So...My hope is, in my journey, God would reveal more interactive wisdoms.  My quest is to help viewers see, not only my art, but to be absorbed in a way that creates life, love and truth.
