Lyn­nette Shel­ley is an award-win­ning Penn­syl­va­nia artist spe­cial­iz­ing in con­tem­po­rary mixed media ani­mal paint­ings. Hav­ing a great love of wildlife, pat­terns and arche­types, Shel­ley fus­es these influ­ences into her strik­ing­ly unique art­works. Her paint­ings strike a pri­mal chord in many view­ers, with almost Jun­gian asso­ci­a­tions to the col­ors and shapes. Her high­ly detailed and com­plex com­po­si­tions are cre­at­ed using a sophis­ti­cat­ed process devel­oped from a buildup of mul­ti­ple lay­ers incor­po­rat­ing tech­niques in both draw­ing and paint­ing — from cross­hatch­ing to under­paint­ing to free­hand drawing.

Shel­ley’s ani­mal and nature themed art­works have been dis­played nation­al­ly as well as region­al­ly at muse­ums, art gal­leries and oth­er venues. She is rep­re­sent­ed by Ivy­s­tone Stu­dio in Down­ing­town, PA, Bor­rel­li’s Chest­nut Hill Gallery in Philadel­phia, PA, and Deja 42 Gallery in Philadelphia.

In addi­tion to her fine art pur­suits, Shel­ley is also the co-founder of The Red Masque, an orig­i­nal dark art rock / pro­gres­sive rock band she has been writ­ing and per­form­ing in since 2001. Shel­ley is also the vocal­ist in Green Cathe­dral, a con­tem­po­rary art rock band. They released their debut album in 2017.

Orig­i­nal­ly from Delaware, Shel­ley lives in Ambler, Penn­syl­va­nia, and main­tains a pri­vate stu­dio in Norristown.
