Enchantment with shape, texture, color and black line is the muse, and art flows from Shelley’s hand!
On her “pen and ink” drawings, it is almost as though the pen moves on its own, creating shape as Shelley adds luscious color and charming detail. Her acrylic and ink paintings start with a rich palette, then comes the addition of black lines: idea and feeling are brought forward through the painting.
Shelley is always delighted by the surprises that are revealed on paper and canvas!
Shelley Valentine is a local Reston artist who loves to create her paintings with vibrant colors and whimsy, leaving room for the eye to discover form.
