2017 Nautical Flea Market in Pompano Beach

Nautical Flea Market
January 21st, 2017 Pompano Beach hosted its annual Nautical Flea market along with the city of Lighthouse Point. I created a large scale 13×13′ angel fish on Saturday using chalk pastel directly onto the pavement. After priming the street with watered down tempera paint, I filled the fish with brightly colored patterns, using both my hands (yes ouch) & sponges. After a substantial water spill, I was able to fully complete my fishy guy. I had a great time interacting with my community & meeting new faces! Stay tuned for future chalk events…

Sarasota Chalk Fest

Venice Chalk Festival Nov 2015

The theme was “Eat Drink & be Merry”. The international Florida festival in Sarasota relocated to the quaint town of Venice on Florid’s west coast. I created a cluster of jeweled fruit, working alongside many talented artists from around the world in the downtown district with the 2D artists. The larger airport grounds hosted many large scale 3D works, including the world record led by chalk art pioneer Kurt Wenner.
