I AM VERNICE
To embody Faith, Fashion & Art transforming Hearts & Minds One Design at a time.

Vernice’s whimsical-childlike process of consistently dreaming innovative solutions for her events captures everyone’s imagination with her transparency and creativity bringing a whole new dimension to being an inspirational speaker! In addition to being a celebrated artist, Vernice is a sought-after keynote speaker who has hosted sold-out events and has catalyzed changes in many lives.

 “Artistic success is drawing you closer to the greatest artist in the world, God.
Let’s go into divine flow to discover your identity to live your true I AM.”  - Vernice

 

I AM two powerful words for what you speak after them shapes your reality. It takes courage to defy the lies that resist you from discovering your true identity. There is no self discovery without knowing God who fashioned you with a distinct purpose for your life. To FLY, First Love Yourself, is to intimately know your True Designer.


“Vernice Holmes is a treasure to our church. As a keynote speaker for our Leadership conference she spoke in several sessions including our Sunday Morning Service.  Lives were changed and she actually brought a new spark and energy that brought about a thrust for our members to use their gifts to serve in the church and in the community.  Vernice also spoke at an event for our women’s ministry. Our women want her back because she creatively challenges us to live life outside of our comfort zone by trusting God in new ways. We consider our connection and relationship with Vernice a blessing from God.”

“Vernice Holmes has ministered to our women on more than one occasion and we can’t wait to have her back.  Her vulnerability makes each woman feel safe to look at areas in their lives that need change.  Her authenticity shines through with every word and every loving gesture.  She exudes love. Women are drawn to her and her positive and vivacious influence is so powerful that women are left in a better place than before she came.  Her communication skills capture your interest from the very 1st word. Women are challenged to be the authentic person God has created each of us to be. We can’t wait to have Vernice back to speak and inspire us to continue to change for the better.”

"Vernice is a ray of light who brings joy, love, and inspiration into the studio.  She has a unique ability to read the personalities and energy of the people in her classes and then teach in a way that they respond and relate to. She loves people and connects with them, so they leave our studio feeling better about themselves for having spent time with her. She is our most requested artist, and we are always confident she will deliver an uplifting and memorable experience to our guests. We are blessed to have her with us!"

She brings out the best in you and has the ability to make you feel that you are loved and safe. I know that Vernice has made me a better person and has helped me find my inner strength. No judgment – just love, laughter and goodness!”

“I just want Vernice’s next event to happen...wish it never ended...it was the most intimate women’s meeting! So full of love and life! I left with a desire to know more about who God is and how he made me.”

Lauren Johns

 

“I know that God is giving Vernice the true desire of her heart and nature. Art is who she is in God. That is the spirit of her soul. She recognizes people as masterpieces and I believe God is now giving her the venue to reach His Future Masterpieces.”
