ART + NATURE
A lifelong Oregonian, Shelli is the youngest of five girls. As a child, not old enough to tag along with her older sisters, she created adventures of her own in the great outdoors — and in art.
Shelli continued exploring art which led her to discover a passion for graphic design. She attended design school and worked as an agency graphic designer for more than 25 years. A paintbrush always ready and waiting, she created art in her spare time until making the leap to freelance design and fine art.
Living in the Pacific Northwest, Shelli is inspired by its 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, invite you to look closer and discover your own story.
If you would like to make one of Shelli's pieces your own, take a look at available paintings. Domestic shipping is free from the studio. More work is available at Tumalo Art Company in Bend, Oregon and Marmot Art Space in Spokane, Washington.
