BIO

Chelsea Arnott is a 25 year old visual artist & writer living in Melbourne’s North. Utilising mixed media she creates bright fields of colour which play host to one-liners; many drawn from her personal diary/iPhone notes, delving into the realms of heartbreak, missed connection and grand romantic gestures. The works weave together to talk about all the ways we can love (and not love) someone.
