Cecelia Chapman is an American artist known for her short experimental video fables; she also works in minimalist watercolor and asemic drawing.  

“In my practice I like to research environment and culture, perception and consciousness. I explore the connection between imagination and knowledge, and enjoy inventing new ways of presenting an experience.” Her work has been exhibited locally and abroad, and published in many e-magazines online. Parsons School of Design
