Chantalle is an artist, illustrator, teacher and addicted to good coffee. A quirky sense of humour and a random act of drawing bears led to a whole sketch book of bears in different situations. People really connected and responded with emotion to the bears which encouraged a whole series and world of bears (and their enemy, bunnies) to develop. Now Chantalle hopes to expand her bear life art into custom art merchandising, publishing Bear books and eventually short animations.
