How I got here, my story & work - from childhood trauma and loss to reconnection.
About the Artist
When Chanelle discovered the power of her own mind, energy and emotions, her artwork began changing the lives of highly sensitive people throughout the world.
Through her paintings, retreats and teachings, Chanelle has made it her mission to connect others with their hearts and show them what can be possible - something she is intimately familiar with after closing off her light at age 12.
Her subject matter focuses on themes that connect nature, everyday observation and healing through her use of blind contour methods. She creates her line drawings without looking at the paper as a daily practice of meditation and mindfulness. Her intimate and honest work helps people live with intention and feel deeply seen.
She is a graduate of Concordia University (Montreal, QC) with a BFA in Studio Arts and a minor in Environmental Geology (2021), author/illustrator of My Nova Scotia Cookbook (2018) and host of the yearly, Finding Awe Within the Ordinary Retreat.
Her work has been shown at Museo Bellini (Florence, Italy) and most recently, she was accepted as the Lunenburg School of the Arts, 2023 Artist-in-Residence.
Jefferson’s pieces are held within the private collections of Pete Luckett and the MacKay-Lyons family.
