For the past 12 years, Shelby has been under the tutalege of her father working side by side in his studio, learning drawing and oil painting disciplines. She aided the making of the Nathan Hale statue by kneading all of the clay for her dad. Her enjoyment of pyrography has become a prominent part of her portfolio.

Artist Statement:
I love to render pieces that lend themselves to wood burning. Old vintage children's book illustrations do just that. I have always drawn and painted animals that I have known, whether they're pets or backyard critters, I am inspired by their personalities. Creating line drawings with a wood burner and then varnishing and painting on them is exhilarating for me. I love to express myself and to see how my art work makes people happy. My work is modestly priced and make great gifts! I do take commissions.
