About

(b. 1990) Chelsea Herron was born in a small town in Northeastern Pennsylvania, she did not have many children to play with, which helped her discover her passion for the arts. Staying inside most days she created and challenged herself to become a better artist. Frequently hearing the phrase “do what you love”, she decided at a young age that she would someday become a professional artist.

After high school Chelsea continued her education at Luzerne County Community College where she graduated with high honors with a degree in Painting and Illustration. It was there that she discovered her passion of representational painting. Following her studies at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design she returned home to immerse herself in the Ani Art Academies Waichulis curriculum. Chelsea finds herself inspired everyday by the talent she is surrounded with in the studio and is eager to see where her education will lead her.
