Chelsea Granger is an artist and illustrator living and working outside of New Haven, CT. She is a longtime member of the artists collective The Royal Frog Ballet as well as a collaborative project with Thyme Herbal, making medicine posters and zines. Chelsea thrives in collaboration, her art/projects are of the everyday, inspired by the overlap of earth/spirit dimensions, and woods as church. She is interested in painting as medicine, painting as a portal, painting as a spell. She sees her art as a way to ‘sing up’ life, and push against death-phobia in hopes that her art can act as a doorway to conversations about death and grief. Chelsea holds a Bachelors in Painting from UMass Amherst and recently received a Certificate in Therapeutic Recreation from Gateway Community College.
