Shelah has lived in and been inspired by the beauty of the Okanagan Valley most of her life.
Her growth and transition into the art of Lampworking glass beads and making jewelry from her
studio in Kelowna was a blissful and successful experience. But, in 2010 corneal sensitivity to
light forced her away from the torch returning to familiar mediums and learning new ones.
Shelah enjoys a country lifestyle which allows her time to work in her studio. When not farming
hay with her husband or pursuing retirement activities, Shelah now works at Mandala Painting
Shelah is a self-representing artist and a founding member of the Okanagan Artist Group, Ars
Longa. She exhibited annually with this collective from 2002 until 2010 and again in 2012 to
showcase established Okanagan artists, promote the Okanagan wine and food culture and
promote and support various non-profit cultural groups.
