In every aspect of her life, Chantey strives to put beauty and love at the centre.
Her paintings are an extension of all the things that bring her joy, and help to face her sorrows. They are an expression of her personal healing, and they reflect what she experiences in connection with the world around her, both tangible and otherwise.
Painting is an intuitive and spiritual realm for Chantey. She describes it as an opportunity to practice trust, and to allow for things to unfold in a way that is both story-telling and spontaneous. While painting, Chantey employs embodiment movement practices, writing, and meditations, to set the space, and to engage with playfulness.
Chantey is a painter, a colour addict, a star gazer, a plant lover, a meal maker, a conscious dancer, and is always on the lookout for delight.
Her paintings come from dreams, mythologies, mystic writings, and they seek to celebrate our common humanity.
