Biography

Shelley Mansel, a native of British Columbia, studied at Fraser Valley College and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax where she now resides as a full-time artist.

She is interested in creating non-specific, generic qualities of places that evoke a cool nostalgia of the familar.
Her landscapes are developed from a mosaic of both actual and imaginary images yet are distinctly reminescent of a particular place for each person who views them.
Memory of place is what gives the paintings familarity-the specificity of place is inconsequential.

Shelley often uses a subdued palette which evokes an aged quality; a sense of mood and drama.
Her use of a saturated palette produces studies of colour, pattern, and light within the floral and landscape subjects.
