Juried Artist BPAF 2017
Having always been inspired by the architectural landscape especially in Colorado and New Mexico as an artist Shelley tries to infuse a sense of spirituality into them. The interplay of the hard edge of architecture or other man made objects balanced with the random forms of nature allow a connection to be drawn with the medium in a very intuitive manner. The use of mark making in pastels or brush strokes in wet media serve as the vehicle for unifying the works. Shelley's award winning paintings and pastels are in collections in Colorado, Ohio and Florida. She is a member of the Pastel Society of Colorado, the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, and the Plein Air Artists of Colorado.
