Bringing the canvas to life through the exploration of vibrant and bold colours, and creating art-inspired fashion is the beautiful Davina Bennett.

The 2017 second runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant did not possess any real passion for this specific form of expression; only an appreciation for its many celebrated appearances on walls and in galleries. She actually discovered this painting gift on her spiritual awakening.

“This all started through spirituality. I was never one for the arts, and I have never painted before this in my lifetime. In fact, I had no interest at all to do so,” she told Flair.

Once Bennett embarked on her spiritual journey last year, she began forming even stronger bonds with God, rediscovering herself and slowly but surely understanding the depths of what spirituality truly entails.

This journey wasn’t all smooth sailing. She struggled with believing and accepting her spirituality. But in April of 2019, the beauty queen, model and entrepreneur began having dreams and receiving remarkably clear visions, which paved the path to her artistic enlightenment in 2020.

“I had no intention of painting, but that is where my spirit led me. It came as an even bigger shock to me when I started to paint those very same dreams.”

That perfectly explains the name of her new painting venture, Dreams on Canvas.

God is truly an artist, she declared, and she is just a vessel, guided by the Holy Spirit to paint pictures. The visual representations of her dreams therefore seek to restore hope and renew faith.

Her canvas pieces include Warrior, Night Night, White Lead Vines, The Valley of Dry Bones, Strength and Eagles, Signs and Wonders, Let Your Light Shine, Resurrection, Heaven Lights, Hidden Gems and BLM.

Her shirt line takes on an even deeper meaning, as it aims to spread the message and make the wearers of the designs a live canvas. The line comprises Bright Night (already sold out), Warrior, and White Leaf Vine tees, and the Signs and Wonder button-down for women. While the men have Valley of Dry Bones tee, Resurrection bottom-down, and Shine Through hoodie.

“I will be selling the paintings for people to hang in their homes or to wear across their hearts on shirts. I decided I didn’t want to keep this side of me hidden anymore, so I am sharing it with the world in the hopes that it will open the minds of people to imagine, interpret and connect with my work on an unconventional, spiritual way.”
