Eight Women – Artist / CHELSEA GUSTAFSSON

Chelsea Gustafsson is an artist and graphic designer from Barwon Heads.Chelsea‘s most recent series of paintings include an embellishment of embroidery. The cross stitching adds a tactile quality and a graphic element to the work. Her subjects often involve a character or scene designed with some sort of quirk and whimsy to it: Goldfish swimming outside their bowl, a deer fleeing from a glass display dome, a hot air balloon coming in to land on a grassy knoll that grows from a pot plant, or dinosaur roaming the small confines of a mossy terrarium.
