Carol Wells graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Art Education. She worked for more than twenty years in graphic arts and publishing before devoting herself to painting pet portraits. She painted more than 1,500 commissions of dogs, cats, and horses in watercolor before discovering the joy of street painting (chalking) in 2011. Since then, Carol has been the featured chalk artist at Houston Via Colori and The Houston Italian Festival, as well as a regular participant at Wunderlich Farm Interactive History Park and Houston CreakFest. She most enjoys working with student artists. According to Carol, “My favorite recent event was chalking a Houston Astros tribute with two SBISD student apprentices at Winchester Elementary. Their enthusiasm and artistic ability was inspiring.”

Carol Wells & Hung Pham

Street Artist Application


Pham is using his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Houston to produce medical, higher educational, and science architectural designs with the national company of Shepley Bulfinch. His artistic portfolio stems from numerous high school awards, and therefore he wants to give back to the student artist community by coaching, mentoring, and offering demonstrative workshops.

Pham’s masterful abilities in 3D street art led him to develop his own mastery of creating perspective trickery. He is currently trademarking his inventive technique using technology. Pham has been invited as a featured artist in several venues statewide such as State VASE, Via Colori, Plaza Palooza, A Taste of Texas, Kerrville Chalk Festival, Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continue Education Rice University, and Big Fest Texas.

Running for the Arts Fest will feature a vendor marketplace, food trucks, kids’ activity zone, live musical entertainment, and much more!

To apply for a vendor booth, please complete and return the Vendor Application by April 20, 2018.
