About

Hello my name is Shelli

I am a painter, sculptor, tinker, wife, and mother of 3. I love Nature and reflect it back into different mediums such as canvas, walls, clay, wood, and fabric.

My Mother and Father always encouraged me to draw and paint providing tools that were needed to keep my desire alive. Little water color books that you only had to add water to (those were my favorite), charcoal pencils, drawing books, etcher sketch, lots and lots of sketch books and scrap paper. I drew all the time almost every day. My Grandmother Mimi who passed on recently, was also a great inspiration, using nature to teach me patience, beauty, instinct, value and individual worth.

I was raised in Port Angeles, Washington.. right next to Forks. Lots and lots and lots, of rain. I stayed in most…

I was raised in Port Angeles, Washington.. right next to Forks. Lots and lots and lots, of rain. I stayed in most days painting and creating, but when the rained cleared, I would venture out into the thick mossy forests and explore all day until I was hungry or tired. I was a huge day dreamer as well.

I graduated from B.Y.U Idaho with a Fine Arts and Science degree. Loved the Atmosphere experience I had there, learning illustration, sculpting and design along with electives of my choosing.

I love to paint. When inspired I like to act on it right away. My children help me with ideas and critiques ( they are straight forward). They also have been found drawing on the walls in my house since they see that it's o.k. for mom to do so when painting murals. I try to find a balance with caring now for my family and bridling my strong desire to create. They come first and I don't want to loose that focus though at times it is very challenging.

I also love to swim, bike and run. Mostly swim.

Hope you have fun reading my novel and I hope you enjoy browsing in my shop for the perfect gift! Thank you for stopping by and feel free to contact me with any questions or requests you may have.

Thank you again.
