Chanel Thervil

Chanel Thervil is a Haitian American artist and educator obsessed with all things art, pop culture, and history. 

Upon roaming the halls of NYC museums as teen, she often found herself wondering why she felt so out of place. Fueled by her lack of satisfaction with the narrow range of representations of people of color on both sides of the canvas, Chanel decided to pursue a career in art. Her love for talking about art, doing research and dragging loved ones to museums that they would never walk into otherwise led her to completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting at Pace University and a Master's Degree in Art Education at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Recently, she's been making a splash in Boston via her public art, portraiture, and collaborations with institutions like the deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Urbano Project, Harvard University, and PBS Kids.
