Marie Shell in her Studio & Gallery overlooking the St. Johns River.
My identity as an artist has evolved over a period of 50
years. My art is about conveying the beauty that abounds
in our natural world. The paintings hopefully depict the
extraordinary in the ordinary around us. I prefer
experimenting with all mediums to accomplish this, finding
watercolor to be the most exciting. It is the most
unpredictable and challenging of all mediums, full of
spontaneity or delightful surprises.
I have a great love of color, shapes and texture, and also
Use acrylics, inks, collage or pastel to convey this. Each
painting is singular and special. Occasionally I go back
to my first medium, oils.
I stay forever focused and entertained with this happy
choice in my life, a commitment to exploration and creativity.
