ARTIST IN THE SAND 
By Trebor Britt

Beautiful Siesta Beach is a magnet for interesting people from all over the world including the state of Florida. Born and raised in Florida, 26-year-old Chelsea Tubb of New Smyrna Beach, a passionate artist, recently visited the crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico shoreline for the very first time. Here to visit a friend, she rarely visits anywhere new without her acrylic paints and a clean canvas. On this day she found the Siesta Beach landscape with four, colorful life guard towers both intriguing and paint worthy. 

Chelsea's current path through life is on a dual track. She fulfills her love for animals by working as a Client Care Coordinator at local veterinarians office and her great love and passion for art by having an online art store hosted by Etsy. Her painting style has a bohemian flair and she loves to paint elephants on canvas with colorful tribal designs. Her biggest sale to date was a 48 x 48 painting of a custom designed elephant she sold for $500.

Chelsea enjoys participating in a unique, worldwide art group called "Art Abandonment". Over to 32,000 artists worldwide are part of the group. You can find it on Facebook or just Google "Art Abandonment". It's   a group designed to encourage random acts of …art, left in various locations around the globe. The idea is that folks can make something and leave it for a lucky unsuspecting person to find. Artists can then post locations and photos of abandoned goodies…and finders can let everyone know  they are the lucky finder. The night before her visit, she and her friend uniquely painted some shells and rocks. They secretly dropped them on the beach then sat down nearby and waited to witness the excitement of the adults and children when they found the art pieces. (see Chelsea's original artwork at www.etsy.com/shop/GypsyTwistArt)
