Hello! I am Mae Chevrette, a painter, photographer, wandering road-tripper and all around lover of life.
I grew up in Seattle and made my way to the East Coast to attend college, spending a few adventurous summers driving cross-country. I have driven approximately 25,000 miles alone through 43 states, fueling my love of road travel and greatly influencing my wanderlust-inspired artwork. I now live and work in historic Boston, Massachusetts.
As an artist, I am entirely self-taught; my work and techniques evolved naturally over time as I experimented with layering my own travel photography, found objects, paper ephemera and written words. I have always loved creating artwork and am passionately curious about the world. I regularly take long road trips to search for the feelings, photographs and materials that inspire my work. You'll often see photos of my travels shared on my blog showing up in artwork just days or weeks later.
Recently, I have had my work featured in a full-page artist interview in O, the Oprah Magazine, and have been commissioned by the Boston Harbor Hotel for in-room artwork and by the Nielsen Company for their luxury suite in the iconic Madison Square Garden.
