“In Shelly’s work, I feel as though I were looking down from 10,000 feet upon a lively landscape containing riverbeds, some flowing with water, others dry and rocky and waiting for the next downpour. I see craggy, rugged uplands which beckon to be walked, explored and, ultimately, known. I see the colors of stone and rare earth minerals together with a suggestion of life-force magma flowing under it all. Her works are a geology lesson in art form, created from imagination, and feel as though they are both endless and timeless. As a lover of Nature, I find them deeply moving and evocative.”  -Jim Eastwood, Chapel Hill
