Welcome to Canvas and Crumpets. My name is Chloe and I love breakfast. I like to approach my artistic endeavors the way I approach a delectable crumpet—with gleeful anticipation.

Art should make you excited! My art writing reflects my interest in feminist art and mystical themes, as well as my attraction to tangible materials, like paint and clay. I also write about jewelers and designers whose work brings me joy—unique materials and sparkly fabrics tend to do the trick. I’m always on the lookout for new artists to write about, so feel free to reach out if you want to collaborate.

Canvas and Crumpets is mainly a journalistic platform, but it’s constantly evolving. Soon I’ll be collaborating with artists to help sell affordable prints to my friends and contacts—sign up for my mailing list if that piques your interest. I also recently added a tab for film and television reviews, as my interests have become wider and more inter-disciplinary.

Interested in my other projects? Here’s the low-down:

-At heart, I’m an academic. I just completed my MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art in July. My dissertation explored anti-Semitic and queerphobic medieval stereotypes in Weimar horror cinema. For full texts of my academic work, visit my Academia page. For a closer look at my academic and work experience, read my Resume. 

-My sister and I founded the vintage brand Zandra and Chloe in 2017. We sell a curated selection of vintage clothing and accessories at The Grand Bazaar most Sundays. While we love this lauded NYC artisan market, we’re also thinking of putting our more expensive pieces online. For now, follow along on Instagram and come see us next Sunday!

-I also sell my decoupage glass vases at the Grand Bazaar. Every piece is unique, decorated with motifs from Victorian note cards and floral magazines, and painted with nail polish, glass paint, and acrylic paint. Each comes with a diverse floral arrangement or a fresh lavender sachet.

-Last but not least, I was born and raised in New York and grew up acting in the city.  I love to tap dance and sing cabaret! You can read more about my performance experience in my Acting Resume.

That’s all for now! I hope you enjoy perusing Canvas and Crumpets. 

xoxo,

Chloe <3
