Drawing on the Promises

It all began in 1975 in Birmingham, Alabama, when Miriam McClung founded Drawing on the Promises Studio of Art as a way to share her art and faith with others. When her son, Frank McClung, started collaborating with design clients in 2003, he borrowed the studio’s name and made something new, dotp, while designing on the same Promises.

Today Drawing on the Promises LLC is the business partnership incorporated in Tennessee that houses both Miriam McClung’s signature artwork and online store as well as Frank McClung’s web strategy consulting business. As of 2021, Miriam McClung’s art is based in Crossville, Tennessee. Frank serves as advisor for dotp, business manager for Drawing on the Promises LLC, and artist agent for all Miriam’s art.
