Shelley Thornton


Shelley works predominantly on canvas and boards and likes to sketch out the composition beforehand. There is a preciseness to her approach and, once the foundation of white paint is laid to the surface, she will juggle different media (eg acrylics, oils, sand, salt, wax, textured paste, clock parts), tools (eg rulers, set squares, compasses) along with decisions on colour, shape, tone and subject matter. She will also choose what words, phrases or quotes, if any, to add.

Often her work draws inspiration from her passion for music. Lyrical elements add to the narrative and mixed media style of some paintings whilst, in others, music has led to the idea and resulting feel for creativity as Shelley builds the piece up each layer at a time.

As Shelley says: “I moved permanently to Cornwall after the birth of my first child because of the breath-taking quality and purity of light that it provides. When I paint, I find myself blending images of steel furnaces and coal mines from my northern roots with the contrasting beauty of Cornwall.”
