Hawaii born artist Chanel first encountered painting and drawing at a very young age. A hobby quickly turned into a passion, which transformed into a life changing career.
Her main focus is on acrylic paintings with expanding interests into mixed media, including metallic paints. The artwork features a contemporary Asian silohuette style. Inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha and Samurai, her paintings embody Japanese, lifestyle, culture and architecture.
Silhouette - A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black. Traditionally, a silhouette is a form of artwork, the term originating in the 18th century and applied to portraits or other pictorial representations cut from thin black card. Silhouette images may be created in any artistic media, but the tradition of cutting portraits from black card has continued into the 21st century.
From its original graphic meaning, the term "silhouette" has been extended to describe the sight or representation of a person, object or scene that is backlit, and appears dark against a lighter background. Anything that appears this way, for example, a figure standing backlit in a doorway, may be described as "in silhouette".
