ChanteDesign's Profile

About

I've always been an artist - For many years I was an oil painter, and took private lessons for six years as a child. Upon entering high school, I found an art teacher who could enrich me further and quit my private class. After ten years of art lessons, I finally launched my first Etsy store. I wanted to start with something I knew would sell, so I began to use beads as a form of paint. My beadwork has become increasingly better, and I have begun to introduce new materials - so I've opened up a second shop, this one, to post all of my newer, mixed-media pieces. And once again, I'm back to oil painting, only this time, I'm painting miniatures on rocks to use in jewelry. Please enjoy!
