Chantal is an internationally collected artist based in the Los Angeles area. Her artwork has been collected by art lovers as far as Austria. She continues to dedicate time to paint while spearheading the Project's activities. This Project is her brainchild, and she is very passionate about honoring her grandmother and the women who participate in the portrait series. The Project benefits from Chantal's rare pairing of innate business accumen and uncontainable creativity; a true Jane of All Trades and master of all! Her mind is always working on strategy and impact. A self proclaimed beach bum and nautical obsessed seafarer, "Captain" Chantal is as powerful as the sea she loves. She is our futurist and keeps the project light as our in house comedian!
