Our History


LPTM was co-founded by Larry Quick, Ben Johnson, and Mary Brown. Larry, a professionally trained artist and native of Ward 7, used art to guide him through his personal challenges and used his experience to create the artistic style of LPTM. Ben Johnson, a skilled fundraiser, shaped the development strategy that allowed Life Pieces To Masterpieces to sustain and grow to its present capacity. Mary Brown,  a nurturing personality, brought an expertise in youth development which was critical in creating a curriculum to foster positive life skills.  Image provided by Kristian Whipple
