Work Evolution | Chelsea got her start painting seasonal subjects such as Santas and Razorbacks. In 2019, she began digitizing her most popular pieces, giving her time to explore original subject matter at the easel. “Now, the bulk of my business consists of high-quality prints. It’s been a goal to create work that is affordable for everyone.”
Arkansas Inspiration | People and nature. “The foundation of my art began in Conway, where I grew up. When I was a teenager I began sketching and painting the children I babysat. These pieces made wonderful gifts to their parents! Recently, I take inspiration from Arkansas waterfowl in my new collection of mallards.”
Pieces with Purpose | “I hope for people to feel a connection with my work in a sincere, unique, and joyful way. My purpose is to glorify God in the process.”
Creative Zone | “I have three young, loud children, so lately I enjoy painting in silence when they are at school. Every day has been a rush to cram in as much as possible during that time. It’s a good thing I thrive in chaos!”
