Bernita Shelley - Artist
Tel: 07976 851776
I was born in South Africa and moved to London at the age of seven. I have grown up in Northwest London and have lived in N2 for the last 5 years with my husband and three young children, having also lived in Switzerland for a couple of years.
After having my third child, I rediscovered my love of painting, citing Pop Art, Abstract and Cubist movements as inspiration.
I predominantly use acrylic and oil paint but experiment and incorporate mixed media of paper, molding pastes, gloss, glitter and diamond dust to create a canvas of explosive colour, texture and art which is full of happiness, intrigue and joy.
I try to create artwork which fills a room with vibrancy, creativity and colour, using bold and positive shapes, motifs and elements to feast the eyes and provide warmth and positivity within.
I also create personalised paintings, incorporating names, hobbies and abstract images to create individually bright canvas'.
I have exhibited at The Brick Lane Gallery and Brooklands Junior School winter fair.
