Welcome I’m Chelz Franzer – a passionate Southern California artist on a mission to make the world a more colorful place.
Through Chelzart I get to showcase my talents and love of all things art by being a freelance artist & illustrator, or instructing art lessons. I even started my own painting party business The Paint Sesh. Living & creating colorfully is who I am.
No project is too big or too small. From custom art to private art lessons…
People or pet portraits, landscapes etc. created
colorfully in a pop art style perfect for your home or
office. Your custom art will be created with heart.
private art lessons
Instructing anything from private one-on-one
adult & kids art lessons, to a night out for The
Paint Sesh. Either way, let’s get creative.
"I’ve been impressed with Chelsea’s artistic skills for as long as I’ve known her. When Chelz took on the project of painting my dog Porky, I knew to expect only the best and Chelsea did not disappoint. I am absolutely in love with the portrait she created. Chelsea’s amazing use of color and details brought this portrait to life. Porky’s portrait is now hanging proudly in our home and everyone who visits is so impressed with Chelsea’s work."
"I absolutely LOVED Chelz! She was so nice, relaxed and went at the perfect pace for everyone. She was very friendly and came around often to check on people's progress and try to help any way she could if needed. I would definitely take another one of her lessons!"
"Chelz was amazing! She was really responsive and attentive to everyone in the room. Will definitely be taking another one of her lessons!"

I hired Chelsea to do some business cards for me. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted so she presented me with several Color schemes and card designs. She helped me narrow it down to one idea to my liking. I'll definitely be going to her again!
