I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and am attempting to glorify God with the talent that He has given me. I have a beautiful wife, Aleithia and I am the dad to 5 great children and Grandfather to fourteen amazing kids. I currently live just in Lafollette Tennessee. I have been illustrating children's books since 2009 and have illustrated over ninety books since then.
All my inspiration comes from the inspired Word of God, the Bible. The purpose of my sculptures is to make the Word of God available to your senses, to your spirit and to dwell in your hearts and your homes.
Ever since I was a child, I loved hearing stories from the Bible. In my heart and mind, the stories seemed to come alive, quickening something deep in my soul—an abiding love for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Now, as an artist and sculptor, this love naturally lent itself to creating sculptures which capture the essence of these wondrous stories.
Prophetic Airbrush Designs was a vision birthed out of the artist, Erica Bryant in 1995. Coming home from college after one year in 1990 Erica didn't know the plan of God for her life at that moment. While working a part time job her co-worker wore some custom drawn designed jeans as seen in the hip hop videos.
She was inspired to learn more about the craft and designed her own jeans as well as a few other co-workers and family members. Jeans after jeans the orders piled on as her clients begin to request airbrush. She purchased her first airbrush kit and begin as Erica B. Airbrush Artist in 1992. Although, she was raised in a Christian home the enemy came in to pervert her artistic gift with the negative images of abbreviated curse words, drugs, and violence to make more money and gain fame in her city.
Convicted by the Holy Spirit she went on a two day fast, repented, and cleaned up the designs. Thus, God birthed the vision for Prophetic Airbrush out of her spirit while in a intense moment of prayer and rededication. "I am making a covenant with you and therefore, I am changing your name," said the Lord God. The business is now called..."Prophetic Airbrush "artwork inspired by God. Designs was given as a prophetic word for expansion while designing the first business cards for the new venture.
Erica was dissatisfied with the negative images that accompanied the music and airbrush art in her city and she was determined not to compromise her gift and talent to continue to fuel the problem that already existed. God gave Erica a vision to spread the gospel through the gift He gave her in art.
Commissioned by God to witness through the business in the city by delivering airbrushed products to gang members, drug dealers, and misguided youth. Salvation and deliverance were the final result.
Our vision is to "Change the faces of lives one paint stroke, one line, and one color at a time".
But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
