Chelsea was born and raised on the shores of Lake Superior (Thunder Bay, ON – a proud northerner), and has always had a passion for capturing the world around her, and sharing unique stories through words, pictures, or art. In the day she works as the Communications Manager for East End Arts, and in the night she magically transforms into an illustration artist, creative writer, and hobbyist photographer. Chelsea holds a master’s degree in English Literature and Gender Studies from Lakehead University, a post-graduate diploma in Professional Writing and Communications from Humber College, and most recently a Graphic Design Certificate from George Brown College. She considers herself a well-rounded written and visual communicator and is always looking to expand her skillsets.
Previous to joining the East End Arts team, Chelsea worked for Toronto Arts Foundation and Toronto Arts Council, and the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services. As the Communications lead on the team, Chelsea leads all of the communications and design materials to support and expand East End Arts’ exciting programming and initiatives. When Chelsea is not working you can find her backcountry camping with her dog, reading, cooking a new recipe, curling (on ice), or drinking copious amounts of tea (or wine).
