While our bodies have emerged from the forest, our souls remain tangled in flora, battling the beasts we created.
Chelsea Greene Lewyta was born in America in the year of the rabbit, month of the ox, to a married couple of mixed European
descent with a Korean daughter, Hallie. They grew up in the Hudson Valley of New York in a small historic town near the river.
Chelsea remembers living inside her head most of her childhood. She enjoyed solving puzzles, drawing, making various contraptions,
exploring the forests, observing animals and watching films about dinosaurs, talking animals, foreign lands and fairytales.
She took an interest in drawing and painting in high school and attended The Mill Street Loft in addition to her high school
electives to prepare her portfolio for graduation.
The Pratt Institute granted her early acceptance for Illustration and she received a merit based scholarship. Chelsea moved to
Brooklyn in 2005 to attend Pratt. Most of her time went to working on her art, contributing and assisting with the school’s comic,
Static Fish, and exploring New York City. While at Pratt, she took an interest in print making and working with mixed media.
She began working on freelance projects in 2008 and two of her works were chosen for the Society of Illustrators Award. One of
her silk screened prints won the Greenwich Workshop Award. In 2008 she also began exhibiting her work internationally.
In 2009 she graduated from the Pratt Institute with a Bachelors of Fine Art and moved to Manhattan to a small studio,
‘The Rabbit Hole’ with her studio companion, Odin. She continued exhibiting on both the East and West coast along with shows
overseas while working on a variety of freelance illustration projects. Some of her clients include Tiffany and Co.,
Victory Records, Art & Anthropology, BioLumina and The New York Observer.
In 2010 she was published in Hunt & Gather, Discovering New Art by Tina Ziegler.
Chelsea continues to experiment and work in a variety of mediums. She exhibits her work regularly and is always creating
something new. She enjoys working with pencils and oil on paper and wood and pencil with ink washes, finished digitally.
