If you are looking for an exciting visual
attraction to your festival or event, give me a call.
I would love to bring my colorful
chalk art performance to your festival!
I love to create an illusion, to tell a story.
To create a window into a new world for others to enter.
My work reflects my philosophy on life.
Life is a creation, nothing in life is permanent.
A flower unfolds its petals in full bloom and glory. It is admired in every stage and eventually it too will fade, but the beauty will be worth the brief time it was here. We appreciate the beauty and look forward to new blooms. I am not bothered that my work is not permanent.
It is the appreciation and gratitude of the viewers
that makes it worth it.
My works are a labor of love. They are a challenge.
They are demanding. They are fun.
In the process of realizing my limitations, I also learn of my potential.
My works are a celebration. a celebration of the event it was created for. A celebration of life.
Until the next one.
