I’m Macaire and recently started 9th grade. My little brother, Camden, is in 4th grade. We live in Illinois in the USA. I started creating chalk art in March 2020 to entertain Cam while at home during COVID.
Cam is included in every picture I chalk and helps bring the art to life. We set a goal of creating chalk art for 100 days in a row and met that goal on July 4, 2020…
We’re honored how widely our chalk art is being shared.
Over 40 countries across 6 continents have written articles about our art and people from all over the world ask Cam to ‘visit’ their country through the art.
I continue creating chalk art because I’m so excited that it makes people happy and because there are many more adventures for Cam to take. Thanks to all of you who encourage us with kind words and travel ideas. We are so happy knowing our world is growing a little closer through Cam’s travels. Please join Cam as he continues to explore the world, all from our driveway.
Since March 2020, I have created over 140 chalk drawings. Please check them out and add a comment to let me know what you think.
Imagine travel — daring adventures new sights — yet staying in place
Join Cam and Hopper as they explore each of the seven continents and the North Pole, all from our driveway. Get inspired to plan, recreate or remember your own travel adventures. Macaire’s interactive chalk drawings and inspiring haiku depict the bond between friends who uniquely experience the world.
I’m using 50% of my book sales to donate this book to educators. My goal is to donate at least 1 copy of this book to an educator in every US state, and to as many countries as possible.
Experience over 115 adventures and travel with Cam, all from our driveway. Walk the Great Wall of China, rocket to Jupiter, skip rope with kangaroos, drive a gondola, zip lining over Niagara Falls, ride a jet pack over an active volcano, scooter in Russia, golf in Scotland, get abducted by aliens, and many more.
If you purchased our book and enjoyed it, we’d greatly appreciate you writing a positive review on Amazon, since it will help others find it.
Watch how I create the art. Each drawing is approximately 12×16 feet and I draw them free hand. I measure Cam to ensure he ‘fits’ in each space.
And how much joy they have brought to each and every one of us who are following! Thank you, Everett family, by showing us how to work and play together, how to lift up those who need it, and for sharing your incredible talent with the world!

It’s awesome to see your work. And for us, here in Cape Town, it’s beautiful and happiness to look at what you are creating. Thanks a lot for sharing your ‘view of the world’! Lovely greetings from Cape Town.

Oh my goodness! Looks 3D. Had to notice the driveway lines to make sure it wasn’t real! Keep up the great work!

Last year we had such a drastic lockdown I didn’t leave my house for 9 weeks and we couldn’t even walk our dogs. I felt so isolated but your daily posts gave me something so special, I really can’t thank you enough for them.

The sheer magnificence of all the works of art you have created this past year is truly beyond compare! You have made the most magnificent lemonade and it’s an honor to be in your audience. Thank you once again for sharing your creativity with us all.

I showed your book to our grandkids and they loved every page and marveled at your imagination. Glad you made something wonderful out of such a terrible year. Hugs.

I almost feel as if I’m there.
What an incredible adventure Macaire and Cam have taken us on in 2020, in a time where we were no longer able to travel, we have seen the sights and our homeland represented with so much love and detail. Every time we see one we are amazed and think that there is no way they can get any better, yet the next one always is!

These are so cool. The fact that do them with your brother says something good about you.

Lindo demais parabens

Your chalk art is beautiful, whimsical, and clever! We got to travel and have fun with new friends (Cam and Hopper) when we were housebound during the pandemic. Your art was a much-needed escape for all of us and became a symbol of hope for better days ahead. Thank you for sharing your talent with us! We can’t wait for our next adventures.

Meeting Macaire and her artworks has been a great experience for me and my students. During the video call we were excited to show our chalk art projects to Macaire. I’m really grateful for her kindness.

We’ve all seen chalk drawings on the sidewalk during the recent confinement. One young artist and her younger muse took it to an unparalleled level. What fifteen-year-old Macaire has achieved is just so impressive, full of magic and love. Please someone give those two an award, a scholarship, a thumbs-up. As far as we are concerned, they have already made pandemic history. These ephemeral and monumental images cannot be preserved in their original state. Luckily, we have social media.
