Traditional Pavement Artist
Born in Africa and of French nationality, Beatrice was exposed to diverse cultures and a multitude of artistic venues. Her childhood environment was an artistic playground which allowed curiosity for the arts to became part of her daily life. After moving to Florida Beatrice received a B.S. from the University of Florida and a Master's in Educational Leadership. She presently hold a position as science coach to teachers in Secondary education and sponsors an after school art club. Beatrice infuses art in every spectrum of her profession for she believes art belongs in every classroom. In fact she loves teaching art as much as science .
As an award winner at various Chalk events, Beatrice recently expended her participation to festivals throughout the Southeast. " Street Painting used to be a hobby and recently became an addiction". "I enjoy large scale art and participating in street painting events rekindles a familiar passion shared by many other artists every time we rendezvous at various chalk festivals throughout the year".
Beatrice also finds the time to paint murals for friends and relatives including daycare centers and classroom walls. As a member of the Florida Chalk Artist Association and the International Street Painting Society, Beatrice is delighted to be invited to various festivals and given the opportunity to create artworks that leave lasting impressions long after the chalk disappeared.
