Shelley McMillan
Calgary based artist Shelley McMillan began her career in graphic and commercial art in Saskatoon.She continued in Calgary at Karo Design Resources until raising a family became her priority. Painting naturally followed. In 2002, after a successful group show and sale, she attained representation with The Collector’s Gallery of Art. In addition she was represented by
Art And All That Jazz in Saskatoon SK and by The Clawhammer Letterpress and Gallery in Fernie, BC. Over the years Shelley has had three solo exhibitions and has taken part in numerous group shows.

Through a journey of rediscovery, exploration and adventure she has literally found new beginnings in the form of art dolls, lovingly made from basic repurposed found materials. Her crude figures may be regarded as representing all people who see themselves as sturdy, resilient, funny, and unique.
