In June, 2009, I participated in the La Piazza dell' Arte, chalk art festival, hosted by the Larimer Arts Association, and held in Larimer Square, in downtown Denver, Colorado. There were many wonderful artists at this festival. For my piece, I re-created and enlarged one of my 2.5" x 3" watercolor paintings, in chalk, to a size of 6' X 8'. Aecom was my sponsor, and it was a pleasure to meet the vice-president who came down to see my work. Below is a link to my piece from the festival.
I participated again this year. The festival was re-named the Denver Chalk Art Festival. This time I re-created a 3"X5" watercolor painting, into a much larger version on June 5 & 6, 2010, at Larimer Square. Southwest Airlines was my sponsor for this year.
Denver Chalk Art Festival 2012
In 2012, my oldest daughter and I participated in the Denver Chalk Art Festival, held June 2 & 3, 2012, at Larimer Square. My daughter Alecia, is a very talented anime artist, and we both created a much larger version of one of my paintings (I was 8 months pregnant at the time also)!
In 2013, I was scheduled to participate in the Denver Chalk Art Festival for my fifth year, and unfortunately I couldn't because my husband was in a motorcycle accident the day before. We are very lucky to have him with us still, and we will be back in 2014, hopefully!

Interested in a portrait or painting?
