Chelsea is the Assistant Director for the d’Art Center and assists the Director, Tricia Hudson, with balancing finances, operations, administration, overseeing programs and events, venue rentals, artist contracts and much more!

After several years of being an Art History and Studio graduate from Old Dominion University, she still refers to herself as an “art kid.” She worked in the corporate world for 10 years, before her first shot in the arts field as a “thought partner” with the Director of Operations at Virginia MOCA. There she wore several job hats and gained experience at a non-profit organization.

Cheyenne Moore - 

Administrative Coordinator

Chelsea Veale - 

Assistant Director

Cheyenne has a BFA in Photography from San Jose State University and a MNR in Leadership for Global Sustainability. Since she is a Navy daughter, she is somewhat of a local. She grew up in the area and went to High School in Chesapeake.

Much like Cheyenne’s localities growing up, she has diverse career experience – both traits allow her to easily adapt into any role at any location. Her most consistent roles have been within customer service in some form or another.

As Administrative Coordinator, Cheyenne wears a few different hats and is here to help where needed! A majority of her daily tasks include correspondences with artists and visitors to the Center, assisting with exhibitions and other special events, and organizing all of d’Art’s information.

Deanna Strother - 

Weekend Support Staff

As a Weekend Support Staff member Deanna wears many hats! She does whatever is needed to fill in the gaps between the primary staff members, but most importantly she greets d’Art Center’s weekend visitors and makes them feel welcome in our space, as well as ensuring they are aware of our upcoming events and opportunities. 

As well as a staff member,
Deanna is a resident artist at the d’Art Center. As a lifelong Portsmouth resident, she is a self-taught artist and discovered paint pouring during a long period of convalescence at home due to a diagnosis of Ménière’s Disease in 2017. 

The experimentation and application of this art form worked as a healing therapy for her while she adjusted to new health changes. In part of this, she believes strongly in ensuring that art and its creative processes are accessible within her community. 

Deanna has an art and photography background and began her own business Fluid Arts by Deanna in 2018. She is usually working in her studio every day, however, she also teaches a variety of kids and adult classes on weeknights and weekends, as well as Summer and Winter Camp at d'Art. Deanna has also been working with Tidewater Arts Outreach since 2021 as an instructor placed within vulnerable communities that benefit from direct Artist interaction; this is work that is very dear to her heart and she finds it incredibly fulfilling.
