Chantel remembers being a passionate artist from early childhood. She loves variety, painting many subjects using different styles. Portraits, however, occupy a special place in her artwork. Chantel desires to capture not just a person’s facial features, but their very heart and soul on canvas. Through her experience in growing as a non-traditionally taught artist, Chantel never stops learning and developing her unique talent and style. Chantel is an active member of the Portrait Society of America. Selections of her work are sold in partner galleries and fine shoppes. Chantel’s work is owned by private and public collectors throughout the United States and overseas, from the famed B.B. Kings Blues Club located on Beale Street in Memphis, to a wonderful primary school in rural Brazil.
