I love this because I have a favorite bowl that could be called my “happy bowl”. I actually have favorite dishware of all types; mugs, glasses, plates. I even find myself a little miffed when I see someone else using them.
I’m not sure the inspiration behind this piece, but I can only imagine that it is a celebration of her favorite bowl. It seems reasonable.
Shellie is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Portland Oregon. Her light hearted abstractions are an interplay of line, color and expressive mark making, often with collage elements adding dimension to the interesting surface texture.
