my creative journey
Ever since I picked up a crayon, I knew I was destined for a creative life larger than what I was given in my lil’ village I grew up in Ohio. After high school I trusted my intuition and went to a private art college: Douglas Education Center. I not only received a degree in Digital Illustration, but I was fortunate enough to take a lot of different art classes. It was then when I fell in love with painting specifically. Since there are more art opportunities in California I headed out west to pursue my dreams!
After moving to California I worked for several years as a graphic designer and painting instructor for a Paint & Sip company. I soon realized my love of teaching people how to paint and decided to take the plunge and start MY OWN paint party business: The Paint Sesh. Owning The Paint Sesh gave me the freedom to meet individuals who liked my art and gave me a flexible schedule work on my personal art for Chelzart to help it grow. Art is a way of life for me… art is my life.
What inspires me the most as an artist is life. There is too much dark, negative things in this life already. Which is why I wanted to start creating through my eyes, my perspective which consists of bright, fun colors that you can’t help but make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The world can be such a beautiful place if you view it at the right perspective.
Getting to see rewarding smiles on the faces of those whom I help accomplish their creative vision, are the kind of vibes I live by. If you want to know more about Chelzart I’d love to connect.
