As well as traditional portraiture, Shelley offers the unique concept of The Portrait Series. By portraying different aspects of the subject, the viewer receives a more complete impression of the subject's personality and likeness. Through the multiple views, personalities become more defined, showing a variety of expressions and emotions. The canvases can also become more three dimensional when combined with each other, by using non-traditional hanging methods such as layering, accordion framing, shelves and poles.

P R O C E D U R E

∑ The artistís portfolio is sent to the client for review, and from this, the client chooses one of the two following styles:

∑ PORTRAIT SERIES: One or more people can be included. This is a flexible format and shows a range of emotions and expressions. There is a variety of ways to frame and|or create installations with these pieces. The paintings are oil on canvas.



∑ TRADITIONAL: Single or group portrait. Oil on canvas, or pastel painting.
