Today we’d like to introduce you to Chantelle Fulce.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
In 2004, my junior year in high school (South Mountain High School), I got into the creative world when I was in broadcasting and communication magnet program as the high school’s “radio personality.” After graduating, I got into the music world, becoming a local artist in a girl group then branching out from there to becoming a songwriter for many local recording artist/musicians. I did that for several years and wanted to learn more about the artistic field. Around 2013, I asked my father (also an artist), to teach me how to paint flowers. So he did. I took some time away from the artist field to focus on my family and college, but decided I wanted to follow my dreams for my three children and my husband, Ronell!
In August of 2018, I wanted to focus more on doing what I loved to do most. It is art. So I bought a canvas, paint and pouring medium and just started practicing. In October 2018, I attended my first art show, and continue to grow from there. Now, I am starting new projects and partnerships with other amazing artists to expand my services.
Please tell us about your art.
I am a painter. I do acrylic pouring and create designs with a spoon. Ever look at a painting and follow the detail or trail of a dried stroke from a paintbrush? That is what I love to create. I am an enthusiast of movement, I like to create feelings and emotion from my paintings, and I am always inspired to hear the many viewpoints on what person will see from the next! I remember at my first art show, a customer came up to my work, and took his finger and followed the trail of swirls that outlined in hunter green and gold. At that very moment I knew, I was working in my gifts, and this would never end. This is just the beginning for me 🙂
One day, I hope to inspire the world through my creativity, for someone to follow their dreams like I am.
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Two things to connecting is communication and availability. Making yourself available and finding time to support other art events and artist. You never know what opportunities await you until you just do it! Fight against doubt and lack of confidence!
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Currently, I am going to be apart of a lot of shows in the first quarter of the year. I am also on Instagram @art_tistic_25.
A lot of my clientele comes from personal referrals.
