Detail of "Fresh Sardines" by Chelsea Elkington Neal (30" x 48" acrylic on canvas)
Impressionistic Realism, portraits, and illustrations. I work mostly with acrylics, gouache, and watercolors. Specializing in unique animal subjects and whimsical children’s art, with a special interest in home and restaurant decor.
Originally from Texas with a background in visual merchandising and faux finishing, I get my inspiration from nature, interiors, animals, and my two children. My most enjoyable painting schemes come from the inspiration of a space itself. I usually imagine where my painting would look best before it even happens. Interior design plays a large part in my artwork ideas.
