Chantal deFelice is as accomplished an artist as she is comely. She is an admirer of vegetables, butterfly guardian and champion of cnidarians. She's been known to frequent beds of kelp and gently decomposed marine creatures - camera & magnifying glass in hand. She works in a variety of media, including video, photography, painting, woodwork and ink drawing. Her subject matter is an analysis of nostalgic urban landscapes, analog technology and the tiny unseen universes in natural artifacts. She was raised in Oregon, graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design and is now dwelling in San Clemente. de Felice has shown her work throughout Southern California, as well as in San Francisco and Pittsburgh, PA.
