Shelby K. Smith is a modern art enthusiast who approaches the craft from an aesthetic perspective. Her goal is to create "feel good" pieces that evoke a sense of visual delight.
Inspired by minimalism and geometric art, her work is simple and precise. She uses bright, bold and saturated colors and likes to incorporate different textures and finishes into her large-scale pieces.
Before pursuing her passion for art, Shelby spent a life-long career developing brands in the beauty industry at companies like Estée Lauder, L'Oreal, Revlon and more. She was able to learn and establish her color theory through this experience and by working closely with Bobbi Brown, a celebrity makeup artist and pioneer in the beauty space.
Originally from Newton, Massachusetts, Shelby earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Florida and an M.A. in Communications from Fordham University. She lives in Darien, Connecticut with her husband, pets and two boys.
