About the Artist
Chiropractor and artist Dr. Chelsea DeVillez was raised in a creative home on a farm in rural Southern Illinois. She was immersed in a world full of music, color, and form at a young age. Through the encouragement of her parents and mentor Barb Allen, Chelsea explored many mediums and techniques, always gravitating toward saturated hues and botanicals inspired by time spent outdoors.
Chelsea developed her signature hat ladies when she was sixteen. But it wasn’t until after stumbling upon the magical bay town of Apalachicola, FL that she decided to produce the women as an entire collection. Her pieces are frequently shown at The Green Door Gallery. She visits the area whenever she gets a chance to recharge and find inspiration.
After residing for nearly ten years in St. Louis, Chelsea relocated to Columbus, IN with her daughter Hayden to practice at Family Chiropractic and Wellness. When not treating patients, she can be found in the woods with her daughter, trail-running, kayaking, practicing yoga, or enjoying a cup of coffee at her favorite café Sogno Della Terra. She has fallen in love with the Columbus area and is looking forward to becoming a part of it’s thriving community.
