Chantel is an artist and designer based in Calgary. She focuses on fine art and textiles, specializing in silkscreen pattern printing and silk painting and dyeing. The textile patterns she creates are rich with hand-drawn design and painterly techniques, drawing imagery from our environment, architecture and history. She dreams that her textiles will bring joie de vivre to the life of their owners.
Growing up in British Columbia’s interior nurtured her love of nature. Add to that a family who loved art, music and craft, her passion for the arts was fuelled early. Chantel completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with distinction majoring in Fibre earned from the Alberta College of Art + Design.
She is also a member of Contextural, a cooperative of fibre artists who exhibit at our annual Artisan Sale in November and collaborate to bring vitality to our community.
