Chanelle Jefferson is an interdisciplinary artist from the South Shore of Nova Scotia. She is recognized for her use of line throughout her work and the communities she creates. Chanelle's subject matter focuses on themes that combine everyday observation, mindfulness, meaningful connection and healing, through her use of blind contour methods. She creates her single line drawings without looking at the paper, resulting in her unique style. Alongside Chanelle's daily art practice, she hosts retreats and creates spaces for creatives to reconnect, learn and grow their business. 

 

Since beginning her BFA in Studio Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, QC), with a minor in Environmental Geology, Chanelle has produced multiple independent projects. She authored and illustrated, My Nova Scotia Cookbook and has artwork sold in stores and galleries throughout Nova Scotia. In 2019 and 2020, she received FASA’s Individual Project Grant (Concordia University, QC). During the summer of 2019, her solo show, Along the South Shore, was shown at the Lunenburg School of the Arts (Lunenburg, NS).

 

Currently, Chanelle is represented by Going Coastal Art Gallery (Chester, NS) and graduated from Concordia University (Montreal, QC) in 2021. She looks forward to continuing to create deeply aligned work and holding space for artists to connect, heal, and grow.
