About Me

Hi! My name is Chantéa (pronounced Shawn-tay-a). I go by Teya for short. I am a Visual Arts student, and have practiced using many different mediums for many years!


Growing up I learned from who I thought was the most amazing artist I knew—my older brother. I wanted to learn so bad how to create the beautiful sketches and detailed drawings that he drew, but I lacked the patience. 


I eventually decided that I should stick it out and let the Jedi Master take me—the young padawan under his wing. I am thankful that I had him as an inspiration to continue my studies in art. 


I have always thought that I needed to branch out from art. For three years I dabbled in Health Sciences, Psychology, then Geography, but always came back to my early fascination of the arts. 


I am now an arts major at my hometown University, and have never been as happy as I am right now. I’ve started ArtByTeya Studio, selling prints of my work and painting commissions. I am still working on selling my original pieces of art, but when the time is right I’ll let them go. 


My favourite medium to work with is oil paint. I love creating portraits, especially for loved ones. It took a long time for me to understand how to properly use oil mediums, how to understand the values—mixing colours, tones, proportions etc. But I would say it was worth it, because now I’m able to use this learned skill, this passion to not just make myself happy but to bring happiness to others. 


If you took the time to read this thank you. Wherever you are in life, there’s always room to build your craft. Never lose sight of creativity🦋
