Hi! Welcome to Mae Chevrette Art.
My name is Mae. I'm a 26 year old artist, 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 at age 18, spending a few adventurous summers driving cross-country and working in various places along the way - I have driven approximately 25,000 miles alone through 43 states, fueling my love of road travel. I now live and work in historic Boston, Massachusetts with my boyfriend Mike and our two kitties, Gracie and Chubby Boots.
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 been in love with creating artwork and passionately curious about the world; my favorite things to do are visit somewhere I've never been or explore a new city with my camera.
I regularly take long road trips - often by myself - to search for the feelings, photographs and materials that inspire my work. You'l often see photos of my travels shared on my blog showing up in artwork just days or weeks later.
