The Art of Chanel Christoff Davis
posts displayed by tag
Like many modern women, I’m extremely busy. When I’m taking a break, I’m often thinking about what’s left on my to-do list. One of the biggest gaps I’ve identified in my daily schedule is time-management. The greater my responsibilities, the worse my time management skills become.
Repost, because it’s Fall, it’s Sunday, it’s GOOD!!!

My family loves this soup. Yaka mein is a New Orleans tradition and I grew up eating it. The beauty of this soup is how simple it is to prepare. It’s such a simple recipe for a huge payoff. You can literally stop at the grocery on your way home and have dinner on the table in one-hour. The best!
You prepare your stock with meat and put all of the fixings on the side – don’t add the fixings to your pot (fixings: boiled eggs, green onions, noodles, hot sauce, and soy sauce). I used chicken and shrimp in my soup, so you can be creative with the protein. Post the pictures when you make this soup (#ChristoffDavis). Yumsters!
It’s a new year full of possibilities. I’m looking forward to new opportunities, partnerships, collaborations, and creativity. I’ve been planning my next painting series and it promises to be my greatest collection of paintings thus far. Along with documenting my preliminary sketches and noting my thoughts throughout the creation of this new series, I am challenging myself to record my creative process. Look out for some videos taking you into my art studio showing you how I do what I do.
Cheers to a joyous 2015!
My art has allowed me to embark on a journey of self discovery and growth that I could not have imagined. It has made me challenge personal boundaries and express my creativity in such an amazing way.
I want to thank every person (too many to name) who has attended my shows, bought an art piece, shared my art with your friends, and commented on my social media posts. The love you have shown me is real and deeply appreciated. Thank you for allowing me to share my artistic expression with you.
I am truly Grateful!

The Art of Chanel Christoff Davis was interviewed by “White Sugar, Brown Sugar”, a blog dedicated to supporting and educating people about transracial adoption in America. The author of the blog Rachel Garlinghouse has been featured on Melissa Harris-Perry Show, NPR, Essence Magazine, and Huffpost Live.
In the article, I share my artist journey and what inspired some of my most popular african-american paintings.

Trust your strengthens, gifts, talents and abilities. When you struggle or waiver in your truth, stop and challenge those negative thoughts. Why are you second guessing yourself, and does that doubt hold up to your truth? Write down your discoveries and begin to reframe internal messages. You will find that what’s bugging you can’t hold a candle to your accomplishments. Trust yourself and continue to remind yourself why you are so great. It’s a daily practice. I challenge you!
