Announcing - Mandie Manzano - Chalk Fest 2021 Featured Artist

The Children's Museum of St. Tammany is excited to announce Mandie Manzano as this year's Chalk Fest Featured Artist.

Manzano has been creating artwork professionally for over 10 years and has had her work featured with many companies such as DreamWorks Animations Fine Arts Gallery featuring her "turbo" light-up canvas and has recently illustrated a cover for a special edition collector’ book with Disney/Third Editions France. "I paint my images to emulate the vibrancy and glow of a stained-glass window. I believe that sharing our light is the most important thing we can do in inspiring and loving others, and like a stained-glass window, our full brilliance is revealed only by having that light from within shine through", says Manzano. Her work has also been featured in multiple art shows such as the Miami Art Expo with the Nina Torres Fine Arts Gallery and the beloved Olde Towne Slidell Arts Evenings where she was the poster artist in 2015. She enjoys creating designs and licensing them for mural pieces, home decor, and accessory products as well as creative outlets to companies such as Diamond Art Club for diamond painting puzzles. She also works as an illustrator for Qamber Kids Publishing and has been nominated this year as a hopeful Global Art Awards finalist that will take place in Tokyo this summer.

Be sure to see Mandie's chalk masterpiece created live during Chalk Fest on Saturday, April 24th.
