Shelly loves the experience of taking a concept or idea and expressing it creatively, whether through art or writing.
Bio: Following graduation from Sheridan College’s respected Illustration program, Shelly found ways to express her inherent creativity in many forms. Over the years, she’s worked as a muralist, a sign painter and a graphic designer. She’s also dabbled in radio, print and digital journalism.
In recent years, Shelly has begun re-exploring her first artistic loves – through drawing and painting the beauty of nature and the human form. Her favourite media are acrylic and watercolour paint, charcoal, conte and pen and ink.
