Chanelle René is an award-winning, New Jersey contemporary figurative painter and mural artist. Her use of vibrant colors and painterly brushstrokes in oils and mixed media often celebrate the feminine figure to create narrative and engaging works from original canvases to large-scale murals. Chanelle has exhibited nationally and internationally with works held in private and public collections. A self-taught artist, she embraced the ‘pandemic pause’ to transition from a 20+ year career in digital marketing to become a full-time artist. A true believer that anyone can ‘shine your vibe’ at any stage of life, Chanelle’s artwork embodies endless possibilities.
Chanelle has worked with several museums, education and community outreach programs such as: Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition, AtlantiCare, Atlantic City Arts Foundation, Noyes Arts Garage, Appel Farm Arts & Music Center, WheatonArts, Cape May MAC, (Atlantic City) Leaders in Training Youth Workforce Development, Ocean City Arts Center, Atlantic Cape Community College
Select media features include CBS Philadelphia, Cape May Magazine and The Curator’s Salon.
