My drawings are friendly for all age groups. Each drawing has a message that corresponds with it. The length of each presentation depends upon the picture, but usually and range between 15-25 minutes.
Presentations are free of charge, though love offerings are very much appreciated.
I generally start by introducing the Talk with some scriptures and/or a song, followed by a prayer. As I begin the drawing the only lights that are on are those on my easel. I draw as I speak, keeping the audience captivated. At the appropriate time, the white lights on the easel are turned off and colored lights will illuminates the easel, attempting to help bring the picture to life. Then these lights are turned off and the black light is turned on, revealing a hidden picture.
One of the many talks I give is called “The Clay and the Potter“. On the right is the hidden picture in that talk that comes to life at the end of the message, when the blacklight is turned on.
In the presentation of “The Clay and the Potter”, the broken cracked pieces of a pot become a new and beautiful pot being formed by the Masters hands. Showing how He will heal the broken heart and make us whole and beautiful once again! I will also create pictures to complement a message that is being present at a conference, program or seminar!

From the time I saw a Chalk Art at 6 years old, I desired to one day become a Gospel Chalk Artist. By the time I was 8 years old my desire began to become reality. A young lady took an afternoon to teach me a little about doing Chalk Art. I did my first presentation shortly there after in my living room for my family and visiting missionary friends. This help to increased my burning desire to serve the Lord through Chalk Art. When I turned 15 years old I was finally old enough to enroll in Gospel Chalk Art class through Eternity Arts Ministries. At the age of 16 I flew to Flint, MI where I completed the second phase of my Chalk art training. Since then I have enjoyed serving the Lord through the gift of Chalk Art here in the States as well as overseas. My prayer is that I would be used by God to make a difference in the lives of those He allows me to come in contact with!
