Biography

Chantelle Andersen is a textile artist from Makkovik, Nunatsiavut, NL. She studied textiles at the College of the North Atlantic in St John’s, NL, honing her skills through the two-year diploma program "Textiles: Craft and Apparel Design", with a major in weaving and surface embellishment. Andersen's craftsmanship centres on her Inuit heritage, blending traditional styles with contemporary designs such as classic amautiit and dickies with a modern twist. Most recently, one of her designs was selected for Canada Goose's national campaign, "Project Atigi."View Long Biography and Citations
