[ABOUT]

How I Got Started

image66

Mary Poppins is one of my favorite movies of all time. I thought it was really cool when they jumped into the chalk drawing. So my kids and I spend Summer days chalking and pretending. In 2011, I was invited to draw at my first official chalk art event and I fell in love with it. 

My Favorite Subjects

I love nature and the amazing creatures that can be found all around us. Animals, bugs, sea creatures, etc. The color and beauty are my inspiration for many of the chalk drawings I do. Sometime, it's fun to see people react to the larger than life drawings that spark both fear and wonder.

3D (Anamorphic) Art

Having people interact with my drawings is always a blast. Taking an idea that would be otherwise impossible and making it real through forced perspective is something I really enjoy. The planning and preparation necessary to produce such a design is all worth it when people smile.
