Biography


Chelsea Revelle is a Boston-based fine artist exploring assemblage, mixed media, and fiber art. Her work examines themes of the home, childhood play and the psychological impact of domesticity. Chelsea received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and later achieved her Masters in Nonprofit Leadership from Wheelock College. The fine art that Chelsea creates has been featured in museums and galleries such as Fuller Craft Museum, Robert Mann Gallery, Nichols House Museum and Fountain Street Gallery. Magazines such as Creative Quarterly, Create! and The Hand have featured her work and generous reviews have appeared in the Jealous Curator, ArtScope Magazine and Boston Hassle. Chelsea's embroidery work was published in Dream House, a collaborative publication in honor of the 50th anniversary of Womenhouse.

Life in the city inspired Chelsea to invest her time in community arts-based education and works to advance access and opportunities for emerging and under-represented artists. Chelsea is currently the Manager of Studio Art Classes at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and former core member of Fountain Street Gallery in Boston’s SOWA district.


In her spare time you can find Chelsea cutting up dollhouses in her Jamaica Plain studio, riding her bike, searching for beach treasures and spoiling her pet ferret Nova.
