My concept is an expansion on a collection of paintings I lovingly refer to as "Scary Doodles." They are brightly colored cartoon characters that fall somewhere between street art and a children's book illustration. A collection of these characters covers the piano, acting as a built-in audience for whomever is playing.
About the Artist
Chelsea Marotta lives in New York City and works in television development. She was born 26 years ago. Since then a lot has happened, including learning to ride a bike, going to college, and making some questionable fashion choices. She loves comedy and art, good music and dancing, and-most of all-creating things to share with others. She aspires to make people happy, whether its through art, comedy, or that one time she accidentally dribbled coffee down her shirt in front of her coworkers and everyone got a good laugh out of it.
