Through a combination of speech, music, and live painting, Chera crafts a compelling argument for the important role art can play in remembering the past, making sense of the present, and moving on to whatever comes next in life. Chera Chaney has spent her life pursuing her love of art. Competing in the Miss Texas Scholarship Pageant in the Summer of 2016, she found a way to use her love of art as her talent by speed painting Elvis Presley on stage in 90 seconds. She now resides in Dallas, Tx and is a graphic designer on the Global Creative team at Mary Kay Cosmetics Headquarters. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
