Shelby’s first UPAF Artist Among Us piece is inspired by the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra. The subject is a young African American boy, holding his violin in anticipation of his performance. She found inspiration in the beauty of the lighting of the photo.
Shelby intends to complete each painting in one day through March 16th. We invite you to observe and follow Shelby’s creative process at her studio at The Pfister and online. Please check back frequently to see Shelby’s progress.
