Jelly Press all started with a love of travel & collecting local art for Chelsea Preston. With Chelsea's original watercolor designs & illustrations she aims to encapsulate a moment in time for you. Whether it be through spreading the snail mail revolution or highlighting a special place.

Painted, printed, & packaged in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. 


Growing up in KY, Chelsea Preston drew everything, including endless doodles of the tropics. This obsession led her to being banned from drawing palm trees in her high school art class (literally). 


Chelsea graduated from Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL, discovering who she was as an artist. This discovery led her to graduate school to study fashion & spent a summer in NYC where she quickly romanticized about acres of green grass, porch swings, & sweet tea. Her Flagler College soulmate led her back to FL to teach fashion design & illustration. Now she resides in New Smyrna Beach, where she drinks sweet tea & doesn't have a porch swing (yet). ​​​​
