Chelsea Belcher is an illustrator, comic artist and metalsmith that loves plants and fighting chronic illness.
She is a multimedia artist currently attending Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville (SIUE) perusing a BFA in Studio Art and a minor in Art History (anticipated graduation 2019). Chelsea’s artwork focuses on themes of nature and dreams as well as issues of grief and coping with illness. Chelsea conveys these concepts through an integration of 2D imagery and language into 3D pieces, in which she aims to find playful ways that the 2D and 3D elements can interact.
Chelsea has created illustrations and comics for anthologies and projects such as Restless Minds: Imagination (anthology), Forged (anthology), Restless Minds: Nightmares (anthology), Merci Beaucoup! (charity zine), Gaming Heroines (charity zine), Devilman Tarot (tarot deck), Memories of You (charity zine), Mix Up No Justsu (zine). In 2018 she published the omnibus of her comic Missing Dream and the first volume of her comic Return. Chelsea is the Vice President of SIUE’s Wagner Association of Metalsmiths and participated in Sculpture on Campus at SIUE in 2017 in which she received funding to create and install a sculpture onto campus grounds.
