The Springfield Regional Arts Council has created a registry of artists in Springfield and our 27-county region in Southwest Missouri. The Artist Registry is compiled as a comprehensive catalogue and made available at local design trade shows and business expositions for residential and commercial purposes. Images of the artists' works are also presented in an electronic slideshow at various events and locations.

  • About Yourself

  • Chelsie’s work explores the human connection, the story of life and love, through realism.
    The process begins by capturing time, isolating the story hidden inside a second. The work deconstructs the moment, seeks to quietly understand it, and then gently maps the light cascading around each form.

    In technical application, her illustrations draw respectfully on timeless artistic foundations, yet dare to build upon them with innovative processes and techniques. Through the painstaking layering of graphite and powders, each delicately blended, Chelsie reconstructs the story without altering the narrative.

    The work is a sincere effort to illustrate the story all around us. Unlike many artists, Chelsie’s drawings are not attempting to generate a new narrative—instead, they point to or visually support, truth already written.
