A UL student is using her talent to bring Disney magic to her neighborhood. Kristen Hill is a graphic design student and she has found a blank canvas in her own driveway. "I've been drawing Disney characters since probably the end of March when quarantined started," Hill said.

She spends hours creating some impressive pieces with chalk.

"Trying to do different ones that people don't normally see. I did Max and Goofy .I did the villains to try and keep it pretty different ,"

Last Spring she completed the college program at Disney World. Since the parks are now closed because of the pandemic, she found a way to still share the magic of Disney with her neighborhood.

"There's a lot of negative things we see with the whole situation," Hill said. "I know it (art) brightens up a lot of peoples day that's all I want from it. We have a few little kids who come by at least 2 or 3 times a day to see the process. They come by and ask questions because they want to know how I do it." She's created dozens of sidewalk masterpieces. Not only is it a way to pass by time, but it's also a way to bring some joy to her neighbors.

"We have this wonderful art work that we can see," neighbor Iva Clement said. "Everybody races to the next day to see what's new. It's great for us to meet our neighbors and view this great art by this artist."
