About Shellie Garber

Shellie Garber is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Portland Oregon. Shellie began painting in the summer of 2015, and soon discovered that she has a deep passion for creating abstract art. Shellie utilizes several mediums to explore color, composition and mark making. Most of her work is in acrylic, collage, oil pastel and pencil. “I see my paintings as a unique language of images. I paint from instinct and intuition and like to keep my artwork completely spontaneous. I feel more connected, to myself and others through my art.”
