Chaney explains her drive to paint is simply; “Love. I would paint whether nobody knew, or the whole world knew I was painting. I am in love with the creative process, I love the challenge of it, the fun of it and the newness of it.”
Her studio is a sacred environment, as she explains that’s where she enters a zone of creation, where time simply disappears. She likens it to a place of ‘muchin’, a Japanese word for no-mindedness. A place of pure love.
