ChalkTwins
Devon & Lexi
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
The Chalk Twins are identical twins who both have a passion for art. They have been drawing since they could hold a crayon. In May 2011, they graduated from Furman University, both with BAs in Studio Art (Devon with concentrations in Painting and Drawing and Lexi in Painting and Graphic Design). Furman gave them a wonderful well rounded liberal arts education and in 2009 they had the opportunity to study with the University of Georgia in Cortona, Italy.

Devon and Lexi started entering chalk art competitions in 2005 and have competed in places throughout the Southeast. Of the fourteen events they have entered they have been awarded Best in Show, Best in Category, first and second place honors in thirteen. Their chalk art projects range anywhere from 4 sq ft to 120 sq ft. They use highly pigmented soft pastel chalk that is completely biodegradable. Most outdoor chalk art will last a few hours to a few months depending on the weather.

COMMISSION/EVENT INFO:
Pricing depends on the complexity and size of the piece. Please contact the Chalk Twins if you require a quote on any project or event!

Where has the time gone!? The last time we wrote a journal, we were freezing in the snow flurries in New York and now it is gorgeous summer in Florida! This was definitely the most happy we have ever been to see spring. Doing extensive driving in the winter was kind of nice (mostly because we like sweaters and layers and less people on the road), but we also didn't like the unpredictability of it all. Oh and all the brown mountains with their dead trees. We were tired of saying, "I know this area would look beautiful if there were flowers and leaves on the trees."... we were ready to see some signs of life again.


For those of you who don't know, we have been on tour with our art for the last seven months. Below is a map of every place we have been since January 1st. With 22,860 miles driven (not including flights to Phoenix, Honolulu, and Los Angeles) we have now been to over 2/3 of the US! We got to explore cities like New York City, Seattle, and Phoenix; we saw nature at its finest with Niagara Falls frozen almost completely over, the pure paradise that is Oahu's beaches, the Redwoods and much of the Pacific Coast Highway, many of the the unique wonders in the Southwest's National Parks, and wind our way through the Smokey Mountains. And we were severely tempted while we were in Tulsa last weekend to just drive straight up to explore Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. But we decided home sounded much better. :D

A big thank you to everyone we have met on our journeys and those who have helped us get there. This will be something we never forget and we hope this is only the beginning of our travels!

O yes, she is a huge Furman fan. Her dream job is to be a professor there. Sounds like it is a great school.
