Her interest in pursuing art began as a child, looking up to her mother and her paintings hung around their home, which are still a source of inspiration.Chelsea is interested in pursuing editorial, exhibition, and concept art work. She primarily works digitally, working with pen and ink traditionally. She takes inspiration from fantasy, our natural world, and the people around her. She aims to create work she can see herself in, and hopes others can see themselves too.Currently, Chelsea is working on her first solo exhibition scheduled for September 2024 at the Mission Arts Centre.CV and social media links are below.If you would like to get in touch, you can email at [email protected].:)
