Muirgen means "born of the sea" in Gaelic. In Irish legend this was the name of a woman (originally named Líban) who was transformed into a mermaid. After 300 years she was brought to shore, baptized, and transformed back into a woman.
I am a visual artist based in Southern California inspired by the ocean and wild spaces.
Born and raised in Oregon, Chelsea has always found home in the natural world. Whether it is climbing mountain peaks or diving in the ocean, her love for these natural and wild spaces began at a very young age.
After graduating from the University of Oregon in Fine Arts, she moved to a coastal town in California and quickly fell in love with underwater photography and ocean conservation.
It is Chelsea’s hope that her photography and design can turn fear into fascination and help inspire others to protect wild spaces around the world.
