Chloe Bensinger grew up in Michigan spending her childhood running wild with imagination in the woods behind her family home. Her early years were rooted in a deep love of the natural world, and a fascination with myths that told of the creatures in it. Chloe’s earliest projects as an artist began with her drawing and painting fantasy inspired pieces, and eventually led to studying graphic design at Madonna University. Today she works full time as a graphic designer for the charity organization GreaterGood. Her love for animals and her childhood toys led to a deeper desire to craft poseable-lifelike fine art figures, an endeavor she would later title “Treehouse Creatures”. Through trial and error, she taught herself methods of sculpting, combining a variety of materials and adding touches of the natural world. Her work today sets out to honor the forests and stories she loves, and to invite people into that same childlike wonder she still lives out today.

Community means everything to us —we aim to provide a safe environment for all who teach and learn at MASW.
