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…
The newest pop up gallery at Pompano Citi Center hosted another exhibit for local south florida artists this month called #evoke. Featured is my 4 x 8 foot chalk panel titled “Union” created live at Magnetic’s previous event last spring, “Art Pop”.
This Saturday I will be creating a chalk piece at the annual Nautical Flea Market hosted by the City of Pompano Beach & Lighthouse Point, located at Pompano Community Park. The event will run both Saturday & Sunday hosting over 23 vendors from fishing, paddle boarding and boating. My street painting will include nautical theme and begin at 8am Saturday morning into the afternoon
Nautical Flea Market
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.
I will be creating a chalk mural alongside 2 other talented street painters for this special event honoring Broward County’s 100th birthday!

The Giving Tree mural completed this past May for the newly relocated ChildNet offices made a feature in the Sun Sentinel newspaper this morning. The murals, based on classic children’s books were designed to create an atmosphere of safety and comfort for the kids brought through this non-profit child welfare system. The four Artserve artists brought in include myself, Jane Casoria, Nadine Floyd, and Lori Pratico.
