meet our featured artist

melissa tshikamba

We are so honored to have Melissa Tshikampabo Kamba Boggs, better known as Tshikamba, as our featured artist for the October 2021 General Conference workbook! “Tshikamba” is a meaningful name that connects the artist to the women in her ancestry. “Tshika,” from her middle name, means “gift” in the language Tshiluba, and “Kamba” is her father’s ancestral name.

Originally from Alberta, Canada, Tshikamba currently lives and works in the Salt Lake area. Her work is inspired by her passion for people, culture, and travel. You can recognize her characteristic gold accents and her thoughtful melding of nature and humanity.

Her stunning work can be found in the October 2021 Original General Conference Workbook!



We may have left God’s presence, but we never wander in this strange land alone. And we may lose our way at times, but we are never lost to him. This fall, join us as we navigate this land together.

And so we pray for this—and naturally so—because we fear failing.
