Shelley has spent most of her life in Ottawa where she worked as an Interior Designer in a private firm for over twenty-five years.
The scope of her design training and years of experience helped to provide an inherent understanding of artistic principles and elements of design. Using those skills, Shelley strives to create a fresh interpretation of the natural world around us in an impressionistic or abstract style.
Acrylics tend to be her preferred medium combined with texture and other methods to help achieve the desired effect.
Continually evolving and changing, exploring new ideas and methods, Shelley, as a self-taught artist, is blossoming with her latest artistic endeavors.
