Shirley’s love of creating came at an early age. She learned many of her techniques from the time she spent with her depression-era grandmother, making artistic statements from items found around the house. Working with various mediums over the past 27 years, she has developed a unique way to manipulate ink and color movement, using traditional and non-traditional artistic tools.
Interpreting nature in its various spectrums, Shirley’s paintings and the techniques used allow the colors to organically blend and take their flowing shapes. Each piece is a uniquely crafted journey into her world of colors...vibrant, but subtle, always peaceful.
With spontaneous composition, each painting creates magnificent imagery. The looseness in the process demands a layering of complex colors, yet the results are intended. Her work has been placed in homes from Paris to Miami.
