NAT chantel is a hardworking artist. She's been selected as a Media Arts Scholar for the Centre for Art Tapes (CFAT) class of 2018-19.

The CFAT scholarship program is an intensive six months of education and mentorship for artists who will make a media art piece in a medium where they have little to no experience. 

CFAT scholars will learn new art-making skills during the program, and are responsible to complete their projects by the program deadline.

NAT is a primarily self-taught artist who engages repetitive processes to recall memory and personal history as a way to reclaim the body and voice.

She was a participant in the 2017-18 VANS Mentorship Program, and the 2018 Summer Professional Development Residency with the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design. 

During the summer of 2018 NAT studied with artist Kate Ward, where she deepened her exploration into textiles.

NAT holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature, and received Talent Trust scholarships to assist with her studies in painting and mixed media art. She’s an active member in the Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia, Visual Arts Nova Scotia, and Nova Scotia Basketry Guild.

During her time at CFAT, NAT will incorporate sound and visual art, and will present a performance piece during Nocturne, Halifax’s art at night festival.
