Introduction: Hello! I'm a public artist wearing multiple hats, but this account is specifically for my painted murals. Formally trained by union house painters and theatrical scenic artists as a teenager, I now have over 15 years experience painting murals, with a commitment to production quality and service that stands out from the rest. I have vast technical knowledge of various types of surfaces, whether exterior or interior, and the different applications they require. My murals can be found as far away as Perth, West Australia (that was a fun trip) and throughout California, the mid-Atlantic and Midwest. Wherever I'm working, I prioritize the goals of the project, and then work backwards with my client on the best path to success. DESIGN PROCESS - Once we agree on a price and logistics, I will send you an artist's agreement that locks in all the details. A 50% deposit of the total price will be due before we start designing together. Once deposit is received and agreement is signed, we'll set up a brief design meeting. After that, I'll create a couple rough designs for your mural and show them to you for feedback. I'll then apply your feedback to the final full-color rendering. My process is transparent so that there are never any surprises once paint touches your wall! COSTS - I charge by the square foot, ranging from $20-35 per square foot, depending on complexity of design and type of surface. For projects over 100 square feet, I charge a materials fee of 5% of artwork costs. The more information you can provide to me upon outreach, such as dimensions, wall surface, and timeline, the more efficient our estimate process will be and the quicker we can get started! IMAGERY - My visual focus is primarily plant life, flora and fauna, portraiture and traditional trompe l'oeil with modern twists and vibrant color palettes. If you're looking for a plain wall or simple treatment, look elsewhere! If you want a colorful conversation piece that impresses your neighbors and friends, I'm your muralist :D ***I am fully vaccinated against Covid19, and my business is fully insured***

Joelle F.

Chelsea is a talented muralist. She is creative, professional and a great team player. We hired her to create a mural as part of a project that involved painting the portraits of 10 people. She is patient, flexible and full of resources. We love her creative intuition. She is a joy to work with and we love forward to our next collaboration.

We had admired Chelsea's work in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood and approached her when we were looking to convert a blank wall to something appealing. Chelsea painted a gorgeous mural on a wall in our deck, which we can see from our kitchen window. It has turned the space from drab and unwelcoming to warm and inviting. Every morning I wait to open the blinds so I can look at the mural. We absolutely loved working with her on this. She took our input and converted our words into art. Chelsea is very talented and a thorough professional. She communicated very well and completed the work on time. Highly recommend!

I love seeing this, Monica! Painting that mural was the perfect way to start off the year and I'm so glad to hear it's still bringing you joy!

Working with Chelsea was such a great experience! I had an idea of what I was looking for, but had a difficult time verbalizing it. She was so good at asking questions and helping me clarify my vision, and then blew me away with the outcome. All the stars!

Chelsea was great to work with! My company employed Chelsea to work on a unique activation outside of the World Series for Lime (dockless scooters/bikes). In the run-up, Chelsea provided punctual, straight forward advice concerning the event -- and she gave us a ton of insight into the social media space as well! When we agreed to the concept, it was all systems go! She was there and ready early and completed the work on time. Chelsea really knocked it out of the park! It was great to send the images back to the team in our corporate office, but additionally, it was a really great and functional activation. It was beautiful, but also provided a great parking spot near the field. We had hundreds of vehicles parked throughout the day. It really was a great time and it was nice to have such a high quality activation!

Thanks for this review, Robert! This Chalk Riot project was so fun, and a blast to create during World Series hype! We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with your team again in the future.
