Shirley Anne’s Statement
The study of cultural anthropology and fine arts has spurred my interest in travel and the personal discovery of many of the peoples and environments in this world. I have a great thirst for knowledge through observation and first-hand experience. I take notice. I witness. I transcribe the world around me through my art.
As a multidisciplinary artist my work has evolved through the exploration of materials in drawing, painting, photography and textiles. I love the tactile touch of yarns and the pixel-like formation of a tapestry the expression of which reveals a glimpse into the human psyche.
