Story Vessel for Deakin Ward

Story Vessel Artist - Deakin Ward

Shelley has been working as a visual artist since completing her first degree (BFA) in 1989. Her work is often described as metaphorical and common themes explored in her art have been ‘identity with place’ and ‘the transcient nature of life’. Over the years she has worked in the mediums of Painting, Mixed Media and Sculpture and has a particular interest in working with colour and pattern. She has also studied Art Therapy and Art Education at postgraduate level and has worked extensively in these fields.

I am keen to work with the community of Deakin Ward as an artist as I live in this area, spent years studying and working at Deakin University and have watched the ward change. I look forward to learning more, through talking to people who know this area in other ways.
