Dedicated & Certified
Founder & Owner
Chantal started toying with the idea of starting Artsy Bugsy Studio because she could not bear to return to the workforce after her maternity leave of her third son, Jacob.
She wanted to create a cosy space that was not only all-inclusive, but it had to be baby and child-friendly, where kids loved coming and parents could relax.
After seeing first hand how much her boys enjoyed art class with their Auntie Sharmaine, she took the plunge and that's how Artsy Bugsy Studio started.
Between her 3 boys and the Studio, she doesn't have much free time but if she does, her guilty pleasure includes some reality TV.
