Chalk Girl - Lysa Ashley
- Street Paintings
Beginning her art career at a quite young age, Lysa Ashley would trade her small drawings for sweets with classmates. Her talent and passion in the arts was evident even then. Little did she know those early doodlings would lead to an amazing career as teacher and artist.
A California native, Lysa shares her love of the arts in the classroom and on the asphalt. A retired elementary school teacher, she is passionate about integrating the arts into academic curriculum.
Another passion is creating beautiful paintings on canvas, walls, and the streets. Street Painting for over 24 years, Lysa has traveled extensively decorating the streets in striking, bold-colored images. Images that have won numerous “Best of Show”, “People’s Choice”, and “Artist’s Choice” awards as well as led to interviews for television and newspapers.
A featured street painter at numerous events, Lysa is regularly sought out to do paint for commercial venues and corporate clients. Always looking for ways to share her love of the arts, she teaches street painting workshops to both adults and children. She was also privileged to be selected as part of collaborative teams on large-scale, record breaking projects in Texas, Thailand, and Canada.
