IM SO HAPPY YOU STOPPED BY
My name is Shelley and I am a self-taught illustrator.
While I have always loved being crafty, I did not begin illustration and painting until 2018. I started with a 100 Day Project and have not stopped since. I love the challenge of untying the complex knot of creativity, exploring new techniques, and the slow process of developing a style. It is still evolving, but my work is almost always joyful, connected to the natural world, and inspired by an interesting story.
It took me 50 years to begin a path I knew I would eventually take. My dream of making art in a studio full of light has just begun and I am so grateful you have taken a moment to peek at my journey.
