My name is Chelsea Lowe and I am a freelance designer and illustrator located in East Tennessee. I paint everything from creepy horror characters to beautiful endangered animals. Want to hire me for a project? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like most artists, I’ve been drawing since I was a kid and I knew early on that I wanted to pursue a career in the visual arts. Throughout my education, I experimented with several art forms such as fine art, print design, and even web design. By the time I graduated, I realized that my ultimate love was illustration. In 2014, I graduated with a B.S. degree in Digital Media from East Tennessee State University. (Go Bucs!) I’m primarily a digital artist, but I also have experience in traditional art methods as well. Most of my art is created on a Wacom Cintiq and iPad Pro.
Since 2016, I have been traveling to comic-cons and pop culture conventions on the east coast in an effort to promote my work. As a result, I’ve been able to meet several celebrities and I’ve even created illustrated posters for a couple of them (such as Anthony Michael Hall and Peter Criss). My work has been featured in art exhibits in both the US and UK, and I’ve been published in various officially-licensed artbooks (including the upcoming Alien: 40 Years 40 Artists). More recently, I’ve worked with Disney-Pixar and 20th Century Fox to create illustrated posters for Toy Story 4 and Dark Phoenix as part of their digital and social media marketing campaigns.
When I’m not creating portraits of my favorite characters from pop culture, then I’m usually drawing or painting animals. I’m a huge animal lover, so I’m especially passionate about animal-focused causes such as stopping poaching. During my downtime, I love to visit credible zoos and wildlife sanctuaries to photograph and admire the animals there. I’m a total dog mom and crazy cat lady - and I live with my German Shepherd (Loki) and two Egyptian Mau mixes (Atlas and Binx).
