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, Shelley's art has been published in numerous magazines and newspapers across Canada. A frequent contributor to Uppercase Magazine, she makes herself right at home with their ethos of blending art, design and typography. Her paintings 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. Creating work that acts as an object in space, as well as an image, is very much a part of her methodology, with the sculptural dimension a key ingredient in her art.
