I’m Shelley-Marie; an artist living in Streatham Hill for the past 9 years. Art and creativity has always been a part of my life and inspired by nature and emotion, it’s hard to stop creating.
I was painting as a hobby and working professionally as a colour technician/hair stylist, which all changed when the pandemic began and lockdown hit. I found I had time again to enjoy my hobby to a degree I did not think possible.
I paint acrylic commissions on canvas of loved ones /pets/special places and like to captivate the souls of those looking into my work, as well as truly capturing those painted in my work.
Portraits aside, I also create ink and textured acrylic art in abstract form. Releasing colours to help your mood be lifted. Most of my work is light reflective so the mood of the piece changes throughout the day.
Now my hair room is a permanent art studio, I want to continue my art to express emotion and bring joy to spaces.
