About Chenoa Maxwell

Maxwell, born in New York, started her career in front of the lens, and is perhaps best known for her breakout performance as the lead female in Miramax’s independent feature film Hav Plenty.  On the small screen, she enjoyed a successful run as the much beloved “Lena” on Girlfriends; but, it is in the breakout film, G, staring opposite veteran actor Blair Underwood that Maxwell emerged as a true screen siren. In 2006, Chenoa took a hiatus from Hollywood and moved to London to study her passion of photography. After formal training from such notable photographers as David Alan Harvey, Phillipe Pache and Stephen Shames, she further indulged her appetite by traveling the world shooting and reporting for various non-profit organizations. Chenoa’s distinctive style and use of light quickly established her as a sought after photographer and in 2008 she began landing ongoing cover jobs. To date, Chenoa is privileged to have her images exhibited in the Art Meets Architecture Exhibit in Sag Harbor, NY, SoHo Photo Gallery in New York, Lex Leonard Gallery in New Jersey, Cinema Odeon in Firenze Italy and The Papillion Institute of Art in LA. Chenoa splits her time between the home she shares with her husband in New York and her creative loft space in downtown Los Angeles.
