this artist is necessary for my in the limelight section. her work inspires me every day. she is someone who i respect for her thought process and intelligence. her name is chelsea roudebush. she has the mountain spirit like me, and oh there is something about that mountain spirit. she studies anthropology, which shows in the human and animalistic figures in her work. she centers her style around this connection between art/humans/animals and the earth. the pieces i have chosen are paintings, mostly acrylic. chelsea paints more than anyone i know. it is pretty amazing. i love people who pursue art just for the sake of pursuing it. her walls are covered with her artwork. she is a true artist.
