, as an artistic lifestyle brand, is quite simply, the personification of confidence and kindness.
With work that's now adapted, bought, sold, licensed and distributed the world over, I am finally at a point where it might be useful to retrace my steps.
How did I get here?
My hope is that I will some day pave the way for more artists to make a living doing what they love. So, maybe it will all be worth it.
Here's where it begins.
In my dreams, I live in the land of Sugarluxe. Where I am the newly crowned ruler of pop art and perpetuator of modern day pin ups. I do cartwheels on the catwalk and sip martinis by the moonlight. My kisses taste like cotton candy and everywhere I go, people are appreciative, sweet and sincere.
In the real world, I am Chandra Michaels
. Artist, Illustrator and Entrepreneur. I work excessively long hours and have sacrificed EVERYTHING in hopes of achieving my dream. I love Las Vegas, I can't go for one day without dill pickles and I don't like mean people.
