Thomas Herr, Jr. is a twenty-year-old chalk artist who has been drawing since he was ten years old when he started taking lessons from Elva Hurst, a local artist from Lititz, Pennsylvania. Since that time, Thomas has presented his chalk talks in the United States, Costa Rica, and Haiti.

Thomas enjoys the sights and sounds of his family’s dairy farm and incorporates some of those elements into his chalk presentations. Thomas is the oldest of four children and his family owns and operates a dairy farm in Chester County, Pennsylvania with 150 milk cows and 200 acres of corn, alfalfa, wheat, and soybeans.

Currently, Thomas is a junior at Millersville University of Pennsylvania majoring in computer science and minoring in music. Thomas also works as an administrative assistant at Hostetter & Hostetter CPAs in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
