About Shirley

Lately I have been painting as if I were flying above the landscape, mapping the roads, buildings, bodies of water and even the inhabitants below. I live in Point Reyes and revel in my good fortune and splendid surroundings daily and then I just paint what I like. I combine the organic world and google earth, paying homage to my favorite artists: Fritz Hundertwasser, Klimt and the Huichol Indians.
