About Shelby


Shelby Elizabeth is an artist living and working in Austin, Texas.

In 2014, Shelby graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, where she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration.

Shelby's artwork is completed using primarily traditional mediums, concentrating on ink drawings and handmade embroidery.


Shelby explains, "The need for patience, attention to detail, and at the same time spontaneity lends itself to the beauty of my artwork.  I love expressing the world through moving lines, whether it is through needle and thread, or a fine tip ink pen.

Currently, nature has been Shelby's primary focus. She enjoys rendering plants and animals to both improve her own abilities and to depict their expressive nature. Exploring wildlife, either directly from life or through a photograph, helps her to reinvigorate her passion for nature.

Shelby's original artwork, prints and custom work are available directly through the artist here. Prints and originals are available locally in Austin, TX at the Art for the People Gallery and Artus Co Gallery. Upcoming shows and events are listed here.
