I'm so excited to be able to share this awesome video with you all.

A huge thanks goes out to the talented Jenny, from www.jymediasolutions.com, who created this amazing video for me 😍 ❤ I absolutely love it!

ART ONLY INSTAGRAM

If you are reading this, you likely already know I have loved art my entire life. I have been sharing, giving and of course selling my paintings for the past few years. I decided to pursue my passion for creating much more this year. I have created a new Instagram account to be a sort of mini gallery where I can share newer works with you. I will be posting various collections and also my collage work. Stop by my new page @chanelmarkusart and follow my artwork for some creativity on your feed ☺

A look inside

A good friend of mine, Katie, bought a painting of mine titled 'Alien' a while back. Its now framed and residing in her beautiful downtown condo. She shared some images with me and I loved seeing how she made my art work in her space. So I thought I would share with you! 

I hope to see more pictures of my works in their new habitats. I am also hoping to update and expand my website to be able to share these images with you. If you happen to have any of my artwork please send me a picture of your piece in your special space for me to share.

The Wandering Eye...

My friend Heather has recently opened up her very own shop in Hamilton, Ontario. The Wandering Eye sells vintage clothing, accessories, shoes and artwork! Heather and I both have our artwork for sale in her cute little store :) If you live or wind up in Hamilton be sure to check it out! You can find it at 3 Colbounre St. inside 'Shine' off James St. North. You can also follow the shop on Instagram @wanderingeyeshop

I'll keep this short and sweet

I am so happy to have my site up and running to be able to share my art with you! With the help of some creative friends, I have been able to sell some of my original paintings at Lustre Boutique in Montreal. I hope to be able to make my art more accessible and hopefully open up an online shop. Until then you can head to Montreal or just send me an email :) This is just the beginning...
