hELLO, I'M CHELSEA

I am an integrative designer who works with innovative people.  I’ve had tremendous opportunities to work with a variety of designers - blending together my love for concept art, typography, branding and photo editing.  I set out to bring forth beautiful designs to those who are looking for a fresh perspective.
My journey has led me to work with photographers, non-profit organizations and small businesses as well as collaborate with a multitude of concept studios.  I’ve had the privileged of working with inspiring clients that continue to bring new challenges.  It is the people I work with that motivate me to expand my artistic disciplines and create stronger, more thoughtful designs.


PASSIONS

Learning and the Outdoors
Growing up in the Finger Lakes region really fed my love for being outside. I like hoping in a car and heading somewhere to climbing, hiking and snowboarding. I don't easily back down from a challenge and I love opportunities that will grow me,  allow me to do something that I love and to see something bigger.

 

Riding
Snowboarding is the best place for me to get away from the busy traffic of today's world. Especially riding at night. The still air, the quiet night and all I can hear is the snow shredding under me. It's an escape into peaceful bliss.

Rock Climbing
I absolutely am driven by climbing and bouldering. Every route presents new challenges, something to work toward, creatively solving issues and trusting myself to reach the goal. It's amazing to accomplish that end goal.

 

Trap Shooting
Trap shooting allows me to hone in on my focus and become a careful and patient observer. Another element that gets me out of my head and into a bigger picture.

Hiking
Some hikes for me are relaxing and beautiful, to see beauty in it's truest breath-taking form. Other hikes are a challenge and determination to see the view from the tallest point.
