Left Pebble Studio is owned and operated by me, Chelsea Stephen (aka Lefty). I am a freelance illustrator living in Portland, Oregon. As a former fisheries biologist, my approach to image making is exploratory and research based. I truly believe that my background in research continues to assist me in creating evocative conceptual imagery in response to basic creative briefs. I loved traveling, so my studio fits into a briefcase, and it goes where I go. Porch decks, retro trailers, and coffee shops are among my favorite places to post up and get to work.
