Biography


I paint to feel alive, excited and free, and I am thrilled when other people experience these emotions through my work.
 
At this point in my painting journey I have established a solid studio practice, and I continue to push my learning and my art. There are no shortcuts, no gimmicks, it is a lifetime’s journey to explore and develop a personal artistic voice and I am so very grateful to be able to share this with other people. "Art is not made in a vacuum" as one of my teachers always tells me.
 
The older I get, the more I believe in the power of action. Only the act of painting, the energy you put into your willingness to confront - letting go of the past - not judging yourself - stop controlling everything - being fearless - , will produce an outcome, a work of art that is authentic and heartfelt. It is not a simple task. It is what I strive for on a daily basis.
  
My goal is to communicate that energy and emotion put in my work through my brushwork, and create excitement through the transitions between light and dark, cool and warm colors.
 
Feel free to contact me anytime for a chat, a visit, information about a piece, a commission.
 
If you would like to accompany me for a bit on this journey and to receive updates on new work, don't hesitate to sign up for my newsletter. 
 
Take care.
Chantalxx
