portrait by Joel Kimmel

Chantal is an illustrator based in Westport, Ontario, Canada.

She enjoys illustrating portraits, icons and other things that reflect my passion for history, fashion history and cute vintage things in general. She also have a soft spot for fairytales and turn-of-the-century illustrations. She studied illustration at Parsons the New School for Design in NYC.

When not working she enjoys historical sewing, plein air painting and hanging out with my husband, Joel Kimmel and our beagles Peanut and Pistache.

I also enjoy printing my illustration on my 1800 lbs. letterpress.

Check out Joel and Chantal’s overly ambitious side-project Every Chip Stand through which they try to illustrate every chip stand in Canada.
