My name is Chelsea and I am an artist. I primarily create impressionistic paintings with lively brush strokes and pops of color. My favorite artist is Degas. I love how he made his dancers feel so alive in the paintings. My favorite subjects are the ocean and animal life. I'm an advanced open water diver and an art Teacher. Most of my paintings come from my travels and adventures. I've traveled to over 15 countries on photography and missions work. Art is my passion, scuba diving is my inspiration, and teaching is my career.
