Art Students’ Replica of “Symbiosis”

Two art students from Lake Howell High School in Winter Park, Florida, participated in a local chalk art competition and reproduced my work “Symbiosis”. They did an amazing job and won best reproduction. 

This is the second time students of art teacher Sandra Rivas-Cole used one of my images. When my art inspires young, talented people it makes it all worthwhile. 

A special thank you to Ms. Rivas-Cole for introducing my art to her students and supporting them in their effort.

7th Graders Use My Art For a Project

This is a reproduction of my work “Social Network” by a class of 7th graders studying color theory. They each received a section to enlarge and copy with paint or colored pencils. Then the teacher put all the squares together.

This is the kind of copying that warms my heart and makes me proud to be an artist. I think they did an amazing job!

A group of children from an elementary school in the UK, who were learning about rivers, decided to do a project inspired by my artwork. I'm so thrilled that my art connects with people of all ages, especially children!

Amazing Chalk Replica of “Impasse”

In my artist life I've been blessed with many special moments but this one I will treasure forever.

Sandra Rivas-Cole is an art teacher from Lake Howell High School in Winter Park, Florida. She found my artwork on Colossal and introduced it to her students. A few of them insisted on using one of my images for an upcoming chalk art festival and together decided to use my piece "Impasse". 

The chalk art festival was at downtown Disney in Orlando, in conjunction with the Festival of the Masters Art Show. Four of Ms. Rivas-Cole's students worked very hard and skillfully to make an accurate replica of "Impasse". They received numerous compliments from visitors and seasoned festival artists as well.

I think these four amazing young students, Haver C., Riana S., Jamilette D., and Meghan S., did a magnificent job. I'm very moved, honored and delighted by their stunning rendition.

Knowing that my art inspires young, talented people, makes it all worthwhile. 

A special thank you to Ms. Rivas-Cole for introducing my art to her students and supporting them in their effort.
