Chelsey MacLean is a Canadian artist currently residing in Toronto, Ontario. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, she discovered her passion for marine art, and was educated on Canadian artists that would inspire her, including Maud Lewis, Ted Harrison and the Group of Seven. During her childhood, she traveled across Canada living in Manitoba and settling in Ontario. As Chelsey’s landscape expanded, so did her art. Her primary work relies on realism, with a focus on portraiture. After attending Sheridan College for Music Theatre, her expanse in the creative arts soon fed her visual creativity, and she explored abstract painting, pop art and expressionism. Chelsey’s next step is to use oils then sculpting mediums, while still growing her current collection of acrylic, ink, and graphite pieces through her own designs and commissions. Please contact the artist with any questions or thoughts!
