Shelbi Beaulieu


Statement Everything that is created by my hands has a deep and personal meaning in the way I approach my work. I often spend a lot of time putting as much of myself into my creations as I possibly can. Every single thing that is placed in each of my pieces is there for a very specific reason, whether it be a deeply personal symbol, like the meaning of a specific flower, or the color could mean something special to me. These small touches are hidden within plain sight that pulls the piece together as a whole. While I use a variety of different art mediums such as photography, watercolors, or Photoshop, the final product is always approached and created in the same way as the rest of my work. I try to take advantage of the time spent on my work and push myself to make it better. I believe every element is important. I get so deeply connected to my artwork so that way it can become clearer of its purpose. It is my goal to create work that makes myself and other people happy when looking at it, just like other works of art I have seen from artists that I truly admire and adore. My life and the world inspire me to create the work that I do, and I want others to feel the same way when looking at my artwork. Family, friends, music, colors, and other pieces of beautiful artwork are just a few of the things I draw my inspiration from. I want to create things that how my love and passion for what inspires me. I want others to smile and study my work, to come to a realization of what the piece could mean or just enjoy it for what it is, a one of a kind piece of art, created by a one of a kind artist.
