I'm Shelley.


I love vintage fonts, the ocean, and running.

I can paint anything.

I even got asked to paint a car once.


Born inspirational and semi-claustrophobic, I’m always moving in body and mind. I love to swim, bike, explore run-down houses and collect shells on the beach. Growing up in Minnesota, I learned to ski when I was five, but secretly envy those who grew up surfing. (I learned at 38).

Grateful to be called Mom by four, Josiah, Anna Rose, Noah and Autumn are my best art.

Faithful steed Finn, part border collie-part moose, is glued to my hip 24/7, traveling in my Tundra when the Texas heat allows. Taking his first airplane to visit Noah on his 20thbirthday, Finn wore his red ‘Emotional Support’ dog vest and sniffed snacks in my pocket.

My mission is to give love, hope and beauty to the world in my art and writing. I believe that anyone can achieve their dreams and that all things are possible. I create art to inspire and write books to build confidence and hope. Creating laughter, fun and happiness on a level higher than most people thought possible, I want others to experience true joy in living.



“I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun."
