CHELSEA kindled her passion for painting by spending her youth mesmerized with the natural beauty and mystery found outdoors. Her career in the Fine Arts grew from a classical background in atelier-style instruction that later expanded into Contemporary and Visionary concepts. Her current style of stippling and watercolor painting emerged while living in Indonesia, deeply inspired by the incredible attention to detail shown in many of its cultural expressions. No lines are drawn when she constructs painting; rather, it is the accumulation of hundreds of thousands of dots that work together to reveal the form and structure.
Chelsea carries a profound adoration for the softness of the female form juxtaposed with nature's wildness. Her work explores the concept that through the stripping of all that is material, and stepping into our most simple and rugged roots, the cycles of birth, death, and regrowth can be reclaimed.
