Canadian artist Shelley Davies creates paintings, collages and photographs that are bold, colour-infused and 3 dimensional. With a background in animation, feature films, television and theatre, Shelley’s many creative pursuits have led her to collage, painting and illustration. Working as an editorial illustrator, her art has been published in numerous magazines and newspapers across Canada.
Her unique and visually stunning, 3D, photographic collages are a specialty of hers. With international jigsaw puzzle companies having commissioned her to create numerous collages, they are now enjoyed by tens of thousands of puzzlers around the world. These captivating collages are also being produced as textiles, making bold, original fabric for a variety of applications.
Children’s illustration holds a special place in Shelley’s heart. Using simple materials, she infuses her delightful characters with colour and wit. Her paintings also incorporate that bold colour she so loves, all with a sculptural aspect using multi-dimensional blocks, building up rhythmic layers of collaged, tightly composed fields of vibrant colour.
