Hello all! My name is Blaire Banfield, I am a current MS4 at the University of Florida COM planning a career in Emergency Medicine. When not shut away studying for hours on end while stress shoving M&Ms in my face I enjoy hiking, brewing beers, and going to Pet Adopt-athons and snuggling baby animals. I also recently fell in love with Chalk Art! My boyfriend and his mom travel around the SE to chalk art festivals and I tagged along a few years ago and became hooked. I have submitted a few pictures of some pieces I have worked on, and I hope to have more to showcase in the future!
