Devon hairdresser turns full-time chalk artist
EDMONTON -- A woman from Devon is sketching out some well known celebrities on her driveway.
Laurie Keindel used to work full-time in a hair salon as a hairdresser and now she channels her artistic ability into creating eye catching works of art.
Some of the most notable murals she’s done include images of Oilers Captain, Connor McDavid, Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne the Rock Johnson.
Keindel told CTV News Edmonton, it’s her way of staying connected to the community.
“I am a social person so I would be talking to my cats all the time if it wasn’t for this,” she explained.
“As people walk by, or scream from trucks, or walk their dogs that’s my social life. People come by all the time to see the work and see what’s new.”

She also made a nearly 40-feet-wide poppy in the snow at a seniors' residence for Remembrance Day.
