My name is Chelsea Brown and I grew up on a llama farm in central Oregon. As an only child, I had plenty of time and space to cultivate my imagination and you would have been hard pressed to find me without a pencil in my hand.
Sometimes that meant destroying furniture or cars with my doodles, or getting in trouble for refusing to go out to recess with the other kids because I had to finish drawing cat people wearing high fashion. Yet I knew, when an adult would lean down and ask the age old question, “What do you want to be?” I always said, “An artist”.
As an adult, I work at the Bryan Ohno gallery and the Martin Blank Studios in Seattle, combining my love of art and my accounting background. Although, there has always been that little kid inside me still saying “I want to be an artist”.
