I'm Chelsea.


Based in the Midwest, I am a conceptual artist and arts-based researcher with extensive experience in public speaking. I have Master of Arts from Purdue University Fort Wayne and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Missouri - Kansas City, both in Communication Studies. I curate an artistic lived experience which informs my academic work, and vice versa. My oeuvre is inspired by performance art, blurring the lines between intimate and public, autobiography and art, and grounded in social critique.


I experiment with various medium: self-publishing, typography inspired hand-lettering, found-objects, diy culture, craft, and other accessible medium to create a whimsical and twee style.
