Location Details You can communicate with me for a rendez-vous at the studio.
By discovering the ancient art of felting which dates more than 3000 years, I found a medium that will keep me busy for the rest of my life: painting with fibers, draping, sculpting, massaging the mostly wool fibers and falling in love everytime with nature’s renewable gift. Futhermore, connecting with local farmers to source my medium from ethically minded folks. I am instinctively drawn to this medium as I am drawn to all the patterns and textures found in nature’s architecture which is a constant well of inspiration.

While still working on some film projects, her main focus is now her studio practice and making felted pieces more accessible to homes and business as functional Art (absorbing sound), adding warmth and of course adding visual impact. Chantal graduated from Lasalle College with a DEC in Fashion Design. She also holds a BA from Concordia University (Montréal). She has exhibited in BC as well as in the UK and was awarded a Vancity public art commission for the Surrey City Center Branch.
