Porch Lights’ mission is to provide opportunities for women to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers to be renewed by God’s love through unique gatherings that aid in the flourishing of their hearts and everyday life. Our speakers bring messages that are both culturally and spiritually relevant, specially designed to encourage and support women in their everyday lives.

About Anne:

A lifelong artist, Anne Neilson began painting with oils in 2003 and quickly became nationally known for her ethereal Angel Series, which are inspiring reflections of her faith.

Neilson has published several books, including three coffee table books, Angels In Our Midst, Strokes of Compassion, and Angels: The Collector’s Edition. Her latest books, published through Thomas Nelson, include Anne Neilson’s Angels: Devotions and Art to Encourage, Refresh and Inspire, Entertaining Angels: True Stories and Art Inspired by Divine Encounters and The Brushstrokes of Life: Discovering How God Brings Beauty and Purpose to Your Story.

Because of the high demand for her original oils, Anne Neilson Home launched in 2013, which is a collection of luxury home products complementing the Angel Series and providing one-of-a-kind beauty and quality.

In 2014, Neilson opened Anne Neilson Fine Art [ANFA], a gallery located in Charlotte, NC, representing over 60 artists throughout the country. ANFA showcases masterpieces from the finest artists and shines a light on charitable organizations by donating a portion of art proceeds each month.

With a passion to make a difference in the world, Neilson continues to paint, write, and share her journey through speaking engagements. She is also a wife of 29 years to Clark and a mother of four adult children.
