Shelley Anne Tipton Irish

Oil Painter, Creative Healing Coach and Meditation Master guiding people in personal liberation through tools of the imagination. 

Through my art, I explore the web of psychology and meditation. I am an artist obsessed with neuroscience and how art effects the brain. I aim to paint beautiful things that act as a bridge between the rawness of feelings and their healing power. 
I started ‘disappearing’ while painting as a young girl and the effects of the creative process on the brain have captivated me ever since. Deep meditation is the only thing I have been able to relate to these experiences.
When I paint, I feel like a choreographer pausing the dance of shadow, light and color at the precise moment where all of them are in their full expression. To find that full expression of each component of the dance, I use Master’s Technique and labor over my paintings for months or years.
I live and work in Seattle, Washington, USA. I was born in Denver, Colorado, USA. I love my family and friends, any body of water, reading and writing, music, traveling and my garden.

I am a proud member of the Society for Art of Imagination!

I am proud member of Moonrise Studios!
