About Chels


Hi there!

I'm Chels and through my business Chelsdrawsyou I have created over a thousand unique pieces for people all over the world using nothing but my iPad and my finger. Yes, you heard that right, Just my finger! 



I call it Digital FingerpaintingIn late 2015 in Canada’s capital, I began drawing my friends and favourite celebrities using a sketch app for fun. What began as a hobby quickly became a new passion. When I started my Instagram (@chelsdrawsyou) to showcase my fingerpaintings, the feedback was overwhelming.

Requests started coming in, and, as my portfolio grew, so did demand for my artwork. I call it fingerpainting because that’s exactly what it is – I sketch every single picture on my iPad Pro using only my finger. I am constantly inspired by the people I draw, and I try to capture each person’s (or animal’s!) aura through my artwork.

I now live in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada with my fiancé. We have recently welcomed identical twin boys Henri & Luca into the world and they have quickly become my best friends as well as my greatest teachers. I am currently a stay at home mom to them while running Chelsdrawsyou. It has always been my dream to do this and so far I am living and loving that dream!

I absolutely love drawing for my clients and hearing the stories behind the portraits I create. Whether they are for your happiest moment or a memory of a loved one each portrait holds a special place in my heart. Thanks for being here and I can't wait to draw for you!
