Awaken your group or organization to the artist within. You’ll be amazed at how as simple to ask the question. Are you an artist?, and many people will reply, No!
We are in charge of creating our life journey. We must get on the path of the unknown, to encounter the known, as we paint our life canvas in a multitude of colors to represent life.
If you would like for me to speak to your group or organization, please feel free contact me.

Anyone who reads “Are You a Starving Artist? Who’s an Artist? Everyone!” will tell you it’s like having a conversation with a close friend. Every chapter and exercise touch our souls and minds, inspiring us to see things differently and make a change. Below are excerpts.
On My Knees
I was on my knees praying when asked if I was a starving artist.
“Am I?” I replied, afterwards asking, “Who’s an artist?”
“Everyone!” I heard.
This very moment my eyes opened wide and I started seeing the work of an artist in an entirely different light.
Who’s an artist? Everyone!
Surgeons, lawyers, nurses, teachers, doctors, mothers, husbands, law enforcers, actors, designers, judges, accountants, bankers, psychologists, gardeners, farmers, hair stylists, financial advisors, counselors, mentors, scientists, astronauts. Everyone, including you!
“Go beyond,” meaning, if I would just step aside, let go of all my fears and trust the power within me, I would move beyond my wildest dreams.
Understanding the Words
Thoughts are words formed in our minds then translated through sound. They can be laid to rest (buried), studied, read and felt. Words are an art of expressing how we feel, what we do and where we are in life.
Has anyone ever told you that you would never amount to anything? That you’re no good? You’re fat? You’re stupid?
Chapter 4: Prepare the Ground
To grow from a starving artist to an artist who’s nurtured and fed, you must prepare for the harvest.
Genesis 2:9 NKJV – “Out of the ground the Lord formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air.”
Build Your Foundation
Building a more abundant life based on the simple principles of love, joy, passion, peace and ESP.
Now you are destiny-bound. We supersede the expectancy of others. All of the negative words ever spoken against us will return void unto them tenfold.
Jeremiah 17:10 NIV – “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.”
Chapter 5: Don’t Believe the Hype
Not all men are good lovers, are romantic, have a six pack or are well-endowed. Not all women are homemakers, maids, stay-at-home moms, want children or are driven by sex. Not all children are obedient or excel in school.
We use the same standard for everyone. We’re only the same because we’re human.
Can you imagine if everyone had to be identified by a scent? What would you smell like? __________________.
When God chooses you to do something, you will have all of the tools you need. Trust Him by getting out of your own way and by following your heart.
Use your power before you lose it. Don’t cut your blood off from flowing. Keep it flowing through your body and know that you can do all things using the power within.
Chapter 6: We Can Change
No one is perfect and anyone can change. You and I may not be able to change the world but the world can change you and me if we let it.
In prayer, I asked what I was doing as I wrote this book. I was led to this passage:
“You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” – John 13:7 NIV
Chapter 7: Second Floor, Please
You must believe. Ask for it. Follow your heart, not your mind; there is a difference.
Just think of your heart and mind as they are—in two different places.
God uses people like you and me to get the attention of others—not the proud but the humbled.
You will no longer battle with those thoughts going on inside your head.
