Thank you for taking the time to explore my paintings.
I currently reside inWoodstock,Ontario,Canadawhere I create original abstract paintings in my home studio under the business name, Quiet Crescent Art.
My present medium is watercolour which I use to create paintings that offer a unique blend of colour, design and transparency. Two phrases best describe my work: “It’s all about colour”, and “Dare to be different”. If my bold designs capture your attention while you discover the images within, I have accomplished my goal. My wish is to stir your imagination, bring pleasure to your eye, and add flair to your walls.
The techniques I use are somewhat unique in the medium of watercolour. My paintings are a collection of brush strokes which connect to form objects, and often while painting, the images will change as if having a life of their own. My wish is for the viewer to discover these images, to stir their own feelings in what they are seeing, and to experience them for the sheer joy and excitement of it.
I am pleased with the success of Quiet Crescent Art and excited that my paintings are finding their way onto the walls of my customers. The fact that people are enjoying my work is truly rewarding.
It is said that Shelley’s paintings are extremely eye catching. Her expressiveness comes solely from mental images generated by experience and observation. This enables Shelley to communicate her innermost thoughts and perceptions into imaginative but believable compositions. Her subject matter is always evolving, leaving her to often ponder what is in store for the future.
Recently Shelley committed a number of her paintings to print. Along with her originals she now offers limited edition (25) giclée prints for sale. Her work can be seen at various locations including galleries in Bayfield, London,Paris,Stratford andWoodstock.
