Jenny’s flair for understanding clients briefs is attributed to her management background in scenic art and theatre production companies, leading teams of artists in producing sets and props for shows, musicals and special events.
Mealie left the corporate graphic design/multimedia world ten years ago to concentrate on creating artworks across many disciplines including painting, sculpture, illustration and murals but didn’t find chalk until 2007 when she was looking to learn more about drawing and to interact with the public.
Dom is a cartoonist, illustrator, sculptor and painter as well as being a great chalk artist. His fun loving nature is contagious, it comes out in his artworks and brings much fun to festival goers and workshop participants.
