Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Chimere Neal out of Charlotte, NC.


I believe that women are naturally creative, expressive, artistic, rare, abstract, and sometimes unexplainable, very similar to art! We have a diverse range of human activity that allows us to be very visually or auditory creative, as well as how we express ourselves with conceptual ideas and use our technical skills, as an ability, to be practical about performing specific tasks.


Our Red Lips Fashionista of the week, Chimere, has mastered the beauty of art, with elegance, grace, and whimsically, as she discovered Canvas Dolls, where it’s just not a paint party, but an experience.

Canvas Dolls offer both public and private painting events that are held at their in-studio venue, showroom or within the community. Canvas Dolls specializes in 3D paintings with accessories or special effects.



They can also customize their services according to the customer’s special request or to fit a specific parties’ theme such as birthday parties or special events. They offer special packages and mobile services, too!


When Chimere first started smoking cigars three years ago, while a student at Barry University. As a reward after classes, she and her classmates would often go to South Beach to eat and enjoy the beach. While there, it was very noticeable that cigars were a very common past time for so many in the area that she witnessed enjoying a cigar, while she was at the beach.

Chimere said that it seemed like cigars by the beach was a popular trend. Therefore, after several months of seeing this, her interest in cigars grew stronger, which lead her to learn more about the lifestyle.


As a result, in 2018, she decided to combine her love for cigars into an event with her current Paint & Sip company called Canvas Dolls. In order for Chimere to marry the two worlds of painting and cigar smoking, she titled the event “Stroke and Smoke” in order to merge her two loves.


At Stroke and Smoke, these events consist of Painting & Sipping, while enjoying various cigars, all while having a good time eating and listening to music. Stroke and Smoke take place monthly and tickets have been sold out for each event. It’s truly a way to combine the lifestyle of cigar loves and artistry!


One of Chimere favorite cigar is the Acid Kuba Kuba, as well as the Liga Privada T52, and lately, she’s been liking a lot of the variously flavored cigars. And, she loves to pair her cigars with vodka.

And lately, Chimere’s been excited about pairing coffee with her cigars.

Chimere is our Red Lips Fashionista of the week because of her creativity and uniqueness to blend her two loves together for being a “Sister of the Leaf” and her love for being an artist into forming the “Stroke and Smoke” events through her business Canvas Dolls.
