A professional street painter, Tracy Lee Stum, best known for her 3D street paintings, also called anamorphic or pavement chalk art.
"3D Anamorphic Street Paintings are illusionary 2-dimensional images that appear to become 3-dimensional when viewed from a fixed point through a camera lens. Tracy has been creating these types of chalk art images since she first started street painting and continues to challenge herself through this manner of visual expression."
