About


Hi, my name is Shelly and I'm a watercolor artist. I began my career in 1988 when a friend and I co-founded a greeting card company, Among Friends. Twenty four years later, my illustrations of home and garden can be found on cards, stationery, books, gifts and home decor.




I have a wonderful husband and son, and we make our home in the Ozarks in Southern Missouri along with our beloved setters. We prefer life in the country, where I can find plenty of inspiration for my work – among God's beautiful creation or in homey objects that remind me of family or friends.


When I'm not spending time with my family or painting, I'm singing and playing bluegrass music with my band, Lonesome Road.

Thanks for your interest in my work!
