Introducing... Shelby Pizzarro!

"Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see." – Jung  

Hi, I'm Shelby Pizzarro. As a firm believer in Synchronicity, I am intrigued with the idea that it can lead to the most profound "Aha" moments we can experience in life and in Art. I am delighted to be part of the Artistcellar Design Team. It is wonderful to have my work viewed alongside the contributions from the other brilliant artists.

I am a graduate of the York Academy of Arts, York, PA and received further education at The Harrogate School of Arts at Harrogate College, England.  

My Fine Art and Illustration work incorporates both digital and conventional techniques. With training in the Graphic Arts, and a career as a commercial screen printer, I now utilize a combination of practices in combination with my collage and mixed-media art. 

 

Although I enjoy working digitally and use ephemera and found materials in my art, I still find that conventional collage is where my Muse thrives.  For me, it’s all about the story expressed through found objects. An old photo or letter usually leads me on an unexpected journey when I am open to allowing it to speak and guide me. I am also passionate about sharing our unique family histories and enjoy employing a paper weaving process within my collage work.  I find, just as the stories interlace to create something new, so does this technique.  

Stenciling gives a piece of art the exuberance I love to see. I find using acrylics, especially metallic colours, gives the finish I am looking for when completing a collage. I enjoy creating Artists Trading Cards and small works. The Artistcellar Pocket Stencils are the perfect size. The variety of designs and their durability make them a “go to” on my work table. 

I hope you will accompany me on my Artistcellar voyage.  My desire is to share what inspires me, entertain those who choose to view my work, and perhaps spark the sense of wonder and creativity that dwells in us all.

Shelby, I love the quote you started with.
Collage is one of my favorite art mediums, too!
You integrate stenciling, collage, and layering so well!
Thanks for sharing!
