About Me






︎︎︎
Shelby (she/her) is an artist currently splitting time between Tkaronto (Toronto) and K'jipuktuk (Halifax) after graduating from the University of Guelph for Studio Art. Her practice is mostly informed by accident. She is an artist who creates works in a variety of mediums focusing primarily on books, performance, and drawing. She is interested in finding humour in human behaviour, exploring mundane histories and objects, making collections through connections, and making  projects and ideas approachable.
