Chantey Dayal ~ Painter
Chantey Dayal is a painter living in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, Canada. She is uninhibited with her precocious, ripe and audacious use of colour. Imaginary gardens that are inspired, playful and forceful foreshadow their potential and explosive beauty. Looking sweet and juicy with life, not to be lost to a breeze at any moment.
From the time that I was five years old, I have only ever wanted to colour, draw and paint. It has always been, and remains to be my favorite thing to do. As a young woman, I studied theatre and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre with a focus in set and costuming design. Working for many years as a scenic artist gave me the confidence and flare for expressing with boldness and sweeping strokes of the brush. Inspiration for my paintings come from night time dreams, dancing, music, poetry, my garden, and most of all my children.
