Artist bio

My name is Chenel , I'm a self-taught artist from New Jersey. I love to paint, it's something that I enjoy doing since I was a little kid. Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. As a painter, my work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. If a viewer stops for just a moment to view and reflect on a piece I have created, then I have succeeded in my work.





Artist Statement

whatever i do in my life, i always put God first. This piece shows no matter what's going on in your life if you have faith in God, everything will be fine. I want this piece to inspire people to have faith.

How it fits into contest

The character in my painting shows that when we accept God into our heart, our life will not be perfect. It does have great things that come with it though! If we have struggles in our life that you think will never go away, we can pray to God and he will help us through it. When a problem comes up and we have nothing left, we can always count on God to be there for us! God is the one that we will always need and the one that will always love us! To know God will always forgive and love us, should give us the courage to love and forgive our enemies. While life can be hard at the best of times, faith is the knowledge, deep down inside, that things will get better. It’s taking the next step when you can’t see the entire staircase. Simply put, life would fail to have reason if we didn’t have faith in God.
