Chelsea Marotta

Many, many moons ago I ran a webcomic where I drew hundreds of little cartoon owls dressed as various pop culture and historical figures. They're pretty cute and I've covered this piano with their wide-eyed glory. From a distance, the piano appears to be a vibrantly colored, polka dotted dream. As you get closer to the piano, however, hundreds of little eyes, all with distinct expressions and personalities, become visible, waiting to hear some music. The body of the piano (and the owls' bodies) is a dusky gradient and the owls are outlined in Sharpie with bright white eyes.

Last year Chelsea Marotta had the pleasure of painting a Sing for Hope Piano for the first time. The experience helped her realize that at age 26, if you love art you can just go ahead and be an artist. So here we are. Since that moment, Chelsea has been buying too many art supplies and using them as fast as she can. (Who are we kidding, she's been doing that since she was a kid.) Art is her favorite ways to spend time, and she feels honored to work with organizations like Sing for Hope that encourage everyone to find the artist within themselves and pursue their passions.
