Wood Polychromatic Bas-relief
In 1968, Chestee began making art in her signature medium,
wood polychromatic bas-relief. When her brother came home
from college for a visit, he brought along his own art
project, a collection of wooden printing blocks, stacked in
the trunk of his Ford Mustang. When Chestee saw them, she
experienced a eureka moment: she would use wood, not only to
transfer images, but as a primary medium.
