About the Artist

Lynnette Shelley is an award-winning Pennsylvania artist specializing in contemporary, mixed media animal paintings. Having a great love of wildlife, patterns, and archetypes, Shelley fuses these influences into her unique artworks. Her paintings strike a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes.

​Originally from Delaware, Shelley lives in Ambler, Pennsylvania, and maintains a private studio in Norristown.
