2.28.18 “Give More Than You Take.”

A few years ago I asked a friend about the business side of art. Business freaks me out. Charging people money still freaks me out. So I asked my friend and fellow artist, Eric Samuel Timm, how to balance being a Christian artist and trying to make a profit. Five simple words of advice “Give More Than You Take.”

It was all the advice I would ever need and sparked this desire to give to as many charities as possible around the city of Pittsburgh and Beyond.

From Pittsburgh, to Dallas, to Salt Lake City I have been blessed to be a part of some of these cities’ biggest charitable events. When you get to experience the things I have been able to be a part of, it gives you a great sense of hope. From the American Heart Association, to Lending Hearts, to JDRF and everything in between, I get to see people coming together, bringing out the best parts of the city of Pittsburgh.

Since March of 2017, these live speed paintings have been able to help raise over $80,000 dollars to various charities in Pittsburgh and beyond.

“Give more than you take.”

Unbelievably blessed.
