Chelsea von Harder was born in 1992 and spent much of her life living in New York City. She now lives in Needham, Massachusetts, and has been creating work at Gateway Arts since 2016.
Von Harder’s work ranges from intricate embroideries to humorous found object sculptures. Her paintings and drawings are often characterized by brightly blocked geometric shapes, at times with looser embellished drawings on top. She has a wonderful sense of color, making subtle choices to create harmony. Von Harder is a generalist when it comes to media, utilizing materials unique qualities while always expressing her own distinct style.
Von Harder’s work has been exhibited in The Gateway Gallery.
