In November 2019, Shelley held a solo show, “Scenes of Scotland” at Gallery Clarendon. She has had paintings accepted for nationally juried shows titled “Road Trip”, “Blue” and “Small Works, Big Impact”. Shelley has also been commissioned to paint works for many clients including for the Netherland America Foundation for the Ambassador to the US from the Netherlands as a retirement gift.
Though Shelley’s formal oil painting instruction began in 2008, she has been creating works of art since the 1970’s when she was a girl participating in local art shows with her mother, Barbara Stewart, an accomplished botanical illustrator. After many years of working in the finance industry, and raising two boys, Shelley has happily reconnected with her creative side.
