Formed in November of 2015 and managed by artists Julia GreenNoble HardestyKelly Knopp, Stuart Holland, and Victor A. Jimenez, Swell is located on the lower level of the Old Mercantile Building in Boise's BoDo district. 

By combining their individual artistic practices and ideas into a common space, the five artists' mission revolves around creating a vibrant studio and gallery environment that is open to the public and intent on helping bolster the community's rapidly-growing arts culture. Swell will be host to both First Thursday and independently organized artistic events while maintaining hours of operation during which people can visit.

Swell Artist Collective’s Amy Chen is a lifelong nature lover, who is continually inspired by the outdoors, especially the things you have to get close up to see.  For her, nature acts as a lens through which she gains focus, appreciation and understanding of her life and the world around her.  Chen grew up in Idaho, and many of Idaho's native animals, insects, and plants that recur in her work have a personal symbolic meaning rooted in childhood memories.
