Maria Alvarez Elam – Stafford, Texas

Maria Alvarez Elam was born in El Salvador and moved to the United States at a young 18 months old. For her entire life, art has been somewhat of a release from the daily stresses. She says, “It helps me grow and heal. My passion for chalking was spurred by my son asking me to draw him dragons and dinosaurs with sidewalk chalk. I realized I loved the medium, then I was introduced to Via Colori and was in awe. I do it for my kids and the love of art.”
