About Shellie Garber
Shellie Garber is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Portland Oregon. She is also a Registered nurse. Shellie began painting in the summer of 2015, and soon discovered that she has a deep passion for creating abstract art. Shellie paints nearly every day after work, and on weekends and is growing quickly as an emerging new artist. Shellie utilizes several mediums to explore color, composition and mark making. Most of her work is in acrylic, oil pastel and pencil, but she also works with collage, and has recently begun exploring oil paint. "I see my paintings as a language of images that allows me to communicate thoughts and feelings that are difficult to express with words. This is my personal way of sharing what’s inside. I paint from instinct and intuition and like to keep my artwork spontaneous and fun. I feel more connected to myself and others through my art."

Shellie's mother is also an artist and teacher and has provided her with a great art role model and mentor.
