I would love to see Marlita simply unleashed on more artists! In our network, I am regularly looking for opportunities to get artists in a room with her to benefit from her experience, wisdom and infectious enthusiasm and faith.

Jonny Mellor
Founder and Head Honcho of Sputnik Arts

I have witnessed first-hand Marlita’s passion and commitment to helping artists navigate their faith and art careers. She has been and continues to be an inspiration to many in our network and speaks to the Christian creative culture around the world.

Josie Gamble
Founder & Director of Christian Creative Directory & Christian Creative Network UK

Marlita demonstrates a wonderful heart for other artists, both in mentoring and creating opportunities for others. This generous expression of her faith and art is a winning combination and sets her apart as an astute guide, discipler, and friend to artists.

Alastair Gordon
Co-Founder of Morphe Arts

Artists who work with Marlita not only feel seen, but feel empowered to continue the work God has set before them in the arts. Her leadership is a gift to any organization seeking to support artists in caring for culture.
