In 2016, Chessie graduated with an Art Foundation in Graphic Design from Camberwell College of Arts. Whilst there, she experimented with a range of physical and digital mediums. Chessie found inspiration in exploring various elements of the graphic design process, such as typography, colour, layering, and imagery.
She collected magazines and newspapers from the 1950s to 1990s via an eclectic mix of sources and used them for inspiration in her work. She began by cutting and sticking as a hobby, finding solace in its meditative, meticulous nature, but has since found a true love for collaging. More recently, Chessie has been exploring the potential of her collages by experimenting with digitalisation and manipulating size and texture. However, she strives to maintain a hand-cut feel to her work.
Intending to display bold and meaningful pieces, her work invokes a range of emotion with their playful nature; explore her collection today.
