Chantal AuCoin recently retired as the first female Naval Engineer in the Canadian Navy, where she enjoyed a fast-paced, adventurous career interacting with fascinating people all over the world.  

Since retirement, her craving for exploration is now satisfied through oil painting by using an observant questioning approach when interpreting her predominantly figurative subject(s).  As an artist using oil in an expressive style, her work displays an empathetic and insightful view of the human condition.

She is currently a full-time student of contemporary portraiture based in London and held her first group exhibition at The Art Academy, London (July 2017)
