MEET THE ARTIST
Shelly graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design. She worked for many years as a designer in an internationally recognized advertising agency. Throughout her career as a designer, Shelly continued to study color theory, which is now relevant in her paintings. She works intuitively placing one hue next to another, cultivating a strong sense of color and balance to create harmonious landscapes and seascapes.
When she is not in her studio, she can be found taking walks on the beach, searching for treasures and hunting for sea glass. Her favorite place to be is at home around the dinner table surrounded by her husband, two children, family and friends. Shelly lives and works in San Diego, California.
