May – June 2021: Chelle Diederich
Chelle Diederich was born in the greater Green Bay, WI, area, and has lived there most of her life. After studying Art, Business Administration, and French in college, she took some time to work a corporate job. She recently began making art again and is discovering joy in the process of learning to be an artist.
Chelle is an abstract oil painter who likes to explore her random thoughts and musings with color and implied texture. She loves working with bright colors and joyful imagery. With her large-scale paintings, she is inspired by the concept of stained glass windows. As a child, she’d often find herself lost in the stained glass windows at church instead of listening to the mass. When Chelle studied abroad in France, she loved to visit Gothic cathedrals to see how the stained glass was used and the stories that were told.
