My name is Bernadette Chalke and I went to The New England Institute of Art for 2 years. I realized that college wasn't for me, so I decided to use the skills I learned, and the rest was self-taught. I created and Illustrated my first Children's book called "Little Frog's Hat Collection." Mitch and I created this story together. He wrote the story and I did the Illustrations. Now I have a second book called "Kitty Makes a Wish." This time this was written and Illustrated by me. Mitch is my boyfriend that I met in college. He went for Animation, and I took Graphic Design. We've been together for 4 years now, and we still are growing strong. He is also a talented artist. His goal is to finish college and get a job as a game character designer.
You can find my examples of my artwork on this site, as well as my other use of media. I do many different types of artwork. Mostly all for children. But, I do art for adults too.
