Chelle Destefano is a multi-medium and multi-disciplinary artist working in performance art, textiles, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and mixed media.
A Deaf Artist extraordinaire that communicates through her artworks, commenting with her introspectives. "Regardless of the candidness and originality in her dream-like atmospheres, Destefano’s roots can be traced in the poetic masterpieces by Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud and Lautréamont." - quoted by Timothy Warrington, International Confederation of Art Critics
