Hello world! You can call me Chell-bell, or Chelsea!
Geeky, nerdy, dorky, short, sweet, and not-so-to-the-point, are all words that I use to describe myself, and I’d proudly wear them on a graphic tee if one such shirt existed. I’ll just make my own…. *furiously scribbles down idea*
I’m very into video games, fashion, tattoos, anime/manga, sci-fi, DIY, Harry Potter, science, anatomy, Star Wars, watercolor, sushi, books, corgis, Pokemon, Asian influenced art and design, pixels, cheesecake, Legend of Zelda, anything quirky, and all things creative.
Austin is where I currently live. I earned a Bachelor’s of General Studies, the program is very specialized and intensive. I essentially created my degree plan, picking out each of my classes. I ended up with three specialties: Social Work, Psychology, and Art.
A little more about me: I am the oldest sister out of a lot of girls, and I have a corgi named the Winnafred, or Winnie.
I myself am an artist. I do a little bit of everything. I used to work at Michael’s store for years and years, the employee discount was the BOMB. I learned many different arts and crafts and gleaned even more inspiration from working there. I went onto to take many, many, many art classes in college, going so far as to earn an Associates of Art, minored in studio art, and nearly had enough credits for a Bachelor’s of Art as well! Maybe one day I’ll finish that one for fun!
I’m an advocate for mental health, domestic and dating violence, and empowerment of people. I currently volunteer as often as I can at various organizations like a women’s center, an animal shelter, a local art market, a youth center, and a library.
My greatest passions are art and medical science–especially that of psychology and anatomy–the marriage between the art and science is something I think can help many people, as it helped me through some of the toughest times in my life. Art comes in many forms, through the creative medias, books, movies, games, even history and science–all are inspiring!
My life’s inspiration stems from a special childhood memory of laying on the floor reading a Harry Potter book, and I thought, “Wow, this story is so great, and Rowling wanted to share it with the world, and I am so happy she did.” It was then I decided that I would share my ideas. Her own personal story of struggle and hardship has been a defining moment in my life.
It doesn’t matter if I become famous or popular or that I make money, all I want is that at least one person becomes happy because I put myself out there, and in turn, they too want to share their ideas. Just like Rowling did for me.
I hope you get inspired to try some new things, and I invite you to share your thoughts with me, too!
