Chess is a mixed media artist based in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Her work firmly roots the iconic figures that she paints in their context, incorporating original newspaper clippings from throughout their lives and legacies.

The textual element of her work brings together the love of reading and writing that she explored through her English degree and Creative Writing Masters with her love of painting and creating.

The finished pieces, as well as being detailed portraits, have the added dimension of the stories that are attached to them.
