American artist Chellis Baird blurs the intersection of painting, sculpture and textiles. Baird explores the elements of painting by reconstructing handwoven canvases from a unique perspective.
Her bespoke process begins with woven structures as her base. Each canvas starts with neutral toned materials that are then painted, dyed and sculpted into dimensional brushstrokes. She creates tangled compositions through a series of twists, knots, and upcycled textiles. Baird’s background in fashion allows her to dress the canvas with imagination.
Baird received her BFA in textiles from Rhode Island School of Design and studied studio art at the Art Students League in New York City. Born in Spartanburg, SC, Baird now lives and works in New York City. Chellis is a 2022 National Arts Club (NAC) Fellow.

Giclée Fine-Art Prints
Our Giclée Fine Art Prints are produced on heavy-matte, acid-free 300gsm cotton photo-paper with 100% archival inks. Our full-time chemists formulate all substrates in-house to achieve museum-quality detail and color vibrancy that is protected for 100+ years.
Our hand-crafted, precision cut solid pine frames were designed specifically for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim moulding provide a clean, sharp frame for your art and allows all focus to be on the work. Hanging hardware is included so your artwork is ready to hang as soon as it arrives.
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
