Chantey is a well known painter in the Cowichan Valley. She is uninhibited with her precocious, ripe and
audacious use of colour.
Imaginary gardens that are inspired, playful and forceful foreshadow their potential and explosive beauty. Looking
sweet and juicy with life, not to be lost to a breeze at any moment.
Her women suggest of warm matriarchal experiences. A tree with blossoms and returning fruits. More love, more
love… be love!
