Chelsea Clarke recently completed her MFA at University of Kentucky in Lexington, where she investigated the intersection of print and fiber. Her work centers around themes of perceived contradiction, seeking comfort, and living in a state of recovery. She received her undergraduate degree in Painting & Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she also finished a post-baccalaureate in nonprofit management with the goal of one day founding a radically accessible artist residency. She currently lives and works in Houston, Texas.
The artist is pictured smiling in front of a fallen tree beside a hiking trail. She has her water bottle and car keys clipped to her belt - very responsible!
