About me

My name is Chantée Benefield and I was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California.  I was fortunate to attend  Howard University in Washington, D.C, studying painting and art history (BFA).  My creative pursuits have spanned the fields of fashion, interior design and entertainment as a designer and scenic painter.

I enjoy working in a variety of media and styles ranging from realistic portraiture to abstract expressionism.  I have

always been drawn to mixed media art and incorporating layers of texture into my paintings.

 A selection of my original artwork is available in my Etsy shop and I welcome commissions and custom works.  

 If you are interested in prints of my work, please find me on and Fine Art America.
