Beth has been drawing since her mom placed a crayon in her hand. Over the years, she picked up passions for drawing, painting, animation, special effects makeup, and fabrication. She earned a B.A. in Film/Video with a concentration in Traditional Animation from Columbia College Chicago. In 2010 “The Chalk Girl” was born from a custom-made position at Six Flags Great America and lasted for five summers. In April of 2016, Beth signed up for her first convention on a complete whim. Without even knowing how they would transport the completed pictures home, Beth and her husband improvised their way through the weekend. Lucky for them, guests thoroughly enjoyed the chalk art. About a month after the convention, Beth and her husband took a leap of faith and began a business called “The Chalk Girl.”In addition to dusting up convention halls across the U.S., Beth spent 10 years conceptualizing and applying special effects make up for scare characters during the Six Flags Fright Fest season.
