Shelli has turned her passion for art and design into a 20+ year career as an art director and graphic designer – and more recently into a contemporary fine art painter. She has been a Bend resident since childhood and is a member at Tumalo Art Company in The Old Mill District.
Shelli’s painting process is a synthesis of having a plan and allowing the work to evolve. She paints from her thoughts and experiences, exploring images ranging from landscapes and flowers, to animals and bicycles. Her intention is to evoke a sense of freedom, joy and empowerment through images
everyone can relate to. “My paintings are an imperfect comingle of paint, typography, graphics, pattern, sketch and texture. I delight in the mixing of these elements as I push and pull paint around the surface, it keeps me engaged and inspired.”
