Hi, Welcome to my website.
I'm Shelley-Marie. As a child I loved to draw and paint and can still remember my aunty teaching me to colour between the lines at a very young age.
I was raised with the impression that to dream of being an artist was silly - having that dream pushed aside, I continued to do my art as a pass time throughout the years and although I got my A* in art for my GCSE, went to art college and fashion college I was never confident enough to let myself shine.
As an adult I travelled a lot and freed myself from the life I had fallen into and trained to become a professional hair stylist specialising in colour. This way, I could creatively work with colour, earn a living and make others happy at the same time.
Losing my income completely during covid lockdowns from 2020(and my mind a little too) I was urged to dig out my paints and have been painting again daily ever since. My love for art has been reignited and I see now that you should follow your dreams and make them a reality.
Being an artist is who I am so I am very pleased to be able to share my world with
I am really enjoying this journey with my new found confidence as having a paintbrush in my hand and music in my ears, allows my imagination to thrive.
I am working mostly with acrylic paints on canvas and have been furthering my creativity so that you get truly unique pieces that have soul. All art work is original and is framed for you.
Over the past 18 months, I have completed 30 portraits for clients. This varies from animals to humans and many have been created from multiple images to recreate a certain scene.
If you're interested in having your own piece created- please do get in touch.
*All of my work is presented in a wooden frame with or without a mount. This can be decided between us as the piece progresses,
*I do not sell prints. All art is original and completely unique. Budgets of all levels can be worked around.
