ABOUT ‘SHELLEY THE ARTIST’
After many years of working as a painter and teacher in Los Angeles, Shelley The Artist is currently based in London. Her preferred studio is the urban landscape where she constantly finds inspiration on trains, cafes, and everywhere people gravitate. As a self-taught painter and teacher, Shelley is a voyeur, looking for narratives in peoples’ faces and demeanours, with preferred mediums such as watercolours, pencils, markers, acrylics, oils, and oil pastels.
This collaboration is the perfect marriage of Shelley’s discipline and commitment to daily drawing practice and the continuous dedication to offering guests the highest level of service and attention to detail at The Milestone. Guests can enquire about individual portrait services and painting workshops to commemorate a special occasion or family holiday, and for any guest looking to create a lasting memory of their stay at The Milestone to cherish for years to come.
