Chelsie Murfee

Chelsie’s work explores the human connection, the story of life and love, through realism. 
The process begins by capturing time, isolating the story hidden inside a second. The work deconstructs the moment, seeks to quietly understand it, and then gently maps the light cascading around each form.

“There is something so captivating about drawing life! No matter how long I’ve been drawing, I’m still amazed to watch a flat piece of paper or canvas come alive!! It’s as if life has been breathed into the work and I can feel the subject’s presence. Even in my recent paintings of colorful bottles, the exhilaration is there when the bottle begins to emerge three dimensionally. I can feel the smooth, cool texture of the glass and the warmth of the light passing through into shadows. The journey to the end result gives me such a rush that I hurry back to do it all over again!”
