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.

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!

"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."
