Shelley Barr
Shelley's Studio

I have worked since the 70's as an interior designer and a visual display artist. My first art studio opened in 1993 in a rustic cottage outside of Victoria, B.C. It began out of my passion to design " one of a kind " textile creations from luxury designer fabrics & trims. Although I started with quilts, clothing & accessories the focus has changed over the years.

When I moved to the Comox Valley in 2004 I discovered hand made papers. Soon I was designing textile / paper wall hangings in an Asian style for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. And I loved the format so much I began creating other wall hangings some in an arts & crafts style with hand painted text. I'm now working on wall hangings that are more scenic in nature and with a more painterly style.

I also began painting again after many years intrigued by how I could incorporate hand made papers . I've developed a style of mixed media collage on canvas that allows me to express myself using acrylics along with all my favorite materials. It has opened up a whole new creative world to me.

You are invited to visit my beautiful online studio / gallery which showcases my art. There is a portfolio as well as a store with work available for sale using paypal. Commissions and custom orders are accepted.
