My Journey

Ever since I picked up a crayon, I knew I was destined for a life larger than what I was given in my lil’ village of St. Henry, Ohio. Being creative was the only thing I was ever passionate about. Art is a way of life for me, despite what the critics said about going to school for art, I trusted my intuition anyway. After getting my Associate Degree in Pennsylvania, I ventured out to the west coast of sunny Southern California, where you can dream big!


What I do

My dream became my reality by freelancing as an artist, through Chelzart I’m creating colorfully custom artwork! Photography is another way I get to express myself through art. As if that wasn’t enough for me I also wanted to be a painting instructor, so I decided to take the plunge in starting my own mobile painting party business: The Paint Sesh. #GirlBoss


Let’s Create

Whether I’m behind a camera/canvas or instructing an event for The Paint Sesh. I am genuinely happy doing what I love. When I am able to put rewarding smiles on the faces of those whom I help accomplish their creativity are the kind of vibes I live by. So why not colorfully create something beautiful together? Connect with me.


What inspires me?

What inspires me the most as an artist is the world surrounded by me. The skies, flowers, trees, beaches, pets, creatures…everything and anything. The world can be such a beautiful place if you view it at the right perspective. 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. Living & creating colorfully is who I am.
