WHO IS CHLOE HENDERSON?
Hi there! My name is Chloe Henderson.
I am an interdisciplinary artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am mainly known for my highly-patterned illustrations. I also trained as a jeweller, and I am developing a passion for making art films. I have just graduated from The Birmingham School of Jewellery with a Masters degree, and I previously gained an Undergraduate Honours degree from the University of Dundee in 2014 in Jewellery and Metal Design. I am greatly inspired by nerd culture, the natural world, the human condition, mythological creatures, and anything a little bit magical. In my spare time I tame unicorns and swim with mermaids.
WHAT DOES CHLOE CREATE?
It was during my studies as a jeweller that I discovered my love for illustration. I became enamoured with nitric acid etching, where I delighted in revealing the delicate line-work on the metal in this process. This passion for creating patterns developed into the highly-decorative drawings that I create now. This style is highly relaxing and a very meditative process, which has become my coping mechanism for the anxiety I suffer from.
My favourite part of the drawing process is hand-drawing every tiny detail of my fantastical obsessions and transforming them into something strange out of my world! I create artwork inspired by nerd culture, the natural world, and faerytales.
Shh… don’t tell anyone… but I am also best friends with The Chimera Artist! 💙 The Artist likes to infect humans with her Chimera virus, and she transforms her victims through new goopy appendages. The Filmmaker sometimes likes to make films about all this oddness… but… you will just have to subscribe to figure out what I am talking about!!
WHAT DO YOU GAIN AS A SUBSCRIBER?
I joined Patreon to allow me to fund my art and the videos that I create. It also gives me the chance to interact more with you guys, and to show you all the secret behind the scenes shenanigans that happen in my art world!
Your support allows me to focus on creating all of my awesome projects like new illustrations, YouTube videos, art timelapses, useful tutorials for you, art-filled blog posts, blue Chimera infections, and much more! I hope to bring you joy, and spark that motivation in you to unlock your creativity, so you can produce your own amazing artwork!
Your subscription helps me to buy art supplies, pay my bills, feed my pets (I mean, if nothing else, you wanna subscribe just for the pet photos that I post… they’re adorable… #justsayin), but most importantly, your support gives me the time, and mental space to focus on creating even more exiting art projects!
