Idea for festival: a piece that combines horses and fantasy, with bright colors and a fun feel. I have a few ideas, but my current front-runner is a non-traditional Pegasus - a horse with butterfly wings.

Location: Hotel Northampton
Idea for festival: Focusing on using lots of color to create rich/dense/vibrant images. Sometimes these have a message - since I love typography and lettering so much - and sometimes are purely graphic.

Rochelle Shicoff & Althea Keaton
Location: Hannoush Jewelers
Idea for festival: Althea and I worked collaboratively at the last Chalk Festival using Shicoff's image. This year we are submitting Althea's image and will again work collaboratively for the Festival.See Samples of Their Work!
Idea for festival: I would like to create two silhouettes of humans, holding hands, maybe two adults or a parent and child, with a vivid sky of rainbow hues, created through utilizing hundreds of small shaded circles, to make the larger image.
