Chelsey earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNM in 2016. She finds passion in art forms that exist outside museum walls and are present in day to day life, such as graffiti, fashion, and especially tattooing. Chelsey often uses her artistic works to give people a laugh, because it's important to her that art is accessible in content and cost.
Chelsey's Artist Statement:
My art tries not to take life too seriously! It's finding simple joys (in this case, the deliciousness of craft beers in NM) in day to day life, without the pretentiousness that can come with gallery art. I try to make art that is fairly straightforward and accessible by any audience that may come in contact.
Why Chelsey participated in ABQ Up With Paint:
Community!! Supporting Art in schools and among kids!!
