|A vision of the future.|
Who and where are you from?
I'm Chelsea Reede a mixed-media artist from San Diego, California, USA.
What brought you to Art?
It might sound strange but this art started to occur after a series of spiritual awakenings. I've been at it almost daily since early 2016.
What is your driving force?
I come to the art table with the desire to be amazed and am rarely disappointed.
What kind of work you do and why?
I work with acrylic paints, inks, paper collage, and charcoal, I like the quick drying time and how it all works together. My work is usually on paper of varying sizes, with an occasional canvas mixed in.
Tell us more about your thought process.
I don't initially put much thought into the art, I spread some different colored paints around or mess with some charcoal and then start to notice images in that. Once I start to work with the characters I usually get a bit of a story that goes along with them. The stories are sometimes very moving, and they really bring the art to life.
Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting and why?
I am really moved by Gillian Lee Smith, her work captures a mood that I find very inspiring, and her characters leave me wondering about their stories.
