This site is under construction because I am not a web designer and am very indecisive. And busy.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet!
My name is Chessia and I am an illustrator based out of Columbus Ohio. I have my BFA specialized in Illustration from the Columbus College of Art and Design where I also minored (unofficially) in Multi-media studies. I'm terrible at talking about myself, so I'll just cut to the chase.
Most of the pieces I do are done by hand and digitally colored. However, I also like doing watercolor, acrylic, oil and cut paper works. If you look through my site, you will see pieces ranging from 100% hand done to 100% digital and many multi-media works. My Etsy store has a small selection of the pieces that I am selling, but nearly everything on here is for sale. For more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The online store has been a slow process...
Currently, a few of my items are available at Celebrate Local in Easton and Pure Roots Boutique in Westerville. 5% of profits from every piece go to the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization (BRAVO), a group dedicated to helping the LGBTQ community here in Ohio. I have so far donated $80 this year to them from my sales. It isn't much, but I hope to have another $50 ready after December this year (already about five dollars in).
I have been featured in the Canton Museum of Art, Phia Salon, Columbus College of Art and Design, and a few other galleries in Ohio. I hope to branch this out over the next year or so and to have a table at an artist alley in 2016.
I hope you enjoy my little corner of the internet. I know it is not the fanciest thing in the world, but at least nothing is automatically playing in the background that you can't shut off, so that's nice :D
CURRENTLY RAISED FOR BRAVO AS OF June 2016: $110!
