Adventures in art and nature.
A lifelong Oregonian, Shelli is the youngest of five girls. Not old enough to tag along on her older sisters adventures, she created adventures of her own in the great outdoors — and in art.
Her continued immersion in art led her to discover a passion for graphic design. She attended design school and has worked as a professional agency designer for more than 25 years. A paintbrush always ready and waiting, she explored art in her spare time until making the leap to freelancer and fine artist.
Living in Oregon, Shelli is inspired by its vast and diverse landscape, and magical wildlife. She shares her love of the natural world in her mixed media paintings and paper mache sculpture. Layers upon layers of thoughts, stories, experiences, moods — shifting one over the other — sometimes revealing a hint of what is underneath. This has become Shelli's signature voice and style. Alternating layers of acrylic paint and collage to create richly textured and colorful pieces that invite you to look closer and discover your own story.
