MY STORY & PHILOSOPHY
Hi there! My name is Chelsea.
My primary motivation is to celebrate the human connection with nature by showcasing natures own designs in conjunction with my artworks. I aim to uncover the unseen and disregarded treasures in nature that are often overlooked in daily life. My work serves to advocate that there is hidden beauty in nature that can come from unusual and forgotten places. Mindfulness found at my feet, I often refer to.
My 'canvas' is nature's by-product. My seedpods are by design the discarded husks that protect the seeds inside, and due to this, I am free to experiment and paint without wasting materials. If an artwork doesn't work out (and this often happens when working with uneven and rough objects), I just discard it into the garden, or green waste bin and let it break down. Thereby, reducing my impact on the environment as art can often impact upon.
I hope you enjoy all of my seedpods as much as I enjoyed collecting and painting them.
