Chelsea Tinklenberg is from Flagstaff in the mountains of Northern Arizona. She received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Northern Arizona University in Studio Art with an emphasis in Sculpture. In her undergraduate studies, she worked primarily in fabricated steel, clay and bronze. Currently a graduate student at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, Chelsea has expanded her use of materials and processes to include stone carving and woodworking. She is currently experimenting with both kinetic and static sculptural forms to capture playful, comedic, movement that eludes to our ever-changing struggle to achieve balance.
