Chey Simpson is a contemporary visual artist from the Kwa-Zulu Natal North Coast of South Africa.
Her paintings range from the highly abstract to representational. She paints with wild abandon and emotional honesty in the abstract process.
Chey's paintings are characterized by vibrant paint layers, energized brushstrokes and textures. She explores unusual color pallets in a variety of mediums on canvas.
Her influences are environmental elements, coastal moods and her passion for animals.
She paints from her home studio in Umdloti which overlooks the coastline and a garden of giant palm trees. She shares her home with a rotti dog, three rabbits, a tortoise, visiting monkeys and an array of wild birds.
Chey qualified as a fashion and interior designer and spent 20 years in clothing and home decor for leading retailers, before beginning her art career in 2016.
She sells her paintings through select Galleries and partners with Interior Designers on commissions.
