Calvert Studio was founded by Chrissie Calvert in November 2020.
Her idea to start an art business started during her studies at Whitecliffe College of Fine Arts. She was looking for a way to share her love and passion of painting with the world. She wanted to create art that inspired positivity and sparked inspiration to peoples lives. It is her way of making a positive difference to this world.
Her idea of painting the beautiful, intimate moments between couples was born when she was commissioned to paint a couple at their wedding live. She was honoured to be apart of their special day. She then expanded upon this idea. She wanted to add another facet to her business. She was asked to do a Mural for interior design, and hit the ground running. It was an opportunity for her to paint large scale, to enhance the atmosphere in peoples spaces.
When she has the time Chrissie is working on her own artist practice, which is based around the subconscious mind and how the mind interacts with the world. She incorporates materiality, movement and gesture in these works which are deeply imaginative.
Chrissie is a passionate artist who has paint on pretty much everything she owns. She also enjoys music and has a love of cats.
