Shelley Cinnamon has lived and worked in Toronto for over forty years. Her painting became her main focus after her career as a graphic design and art director. Her interest in art started at a very young age and by ten she was already painting in oils. She has traveled extensively around the world for both pleasure and work. The love of painting and artwork was really fostered as she visited the great galleries of Europe and explored the arts in Africa and Asia.
In the last fifteen years Shelley has delved more intently into developing her own style and voice in her painting and artwork. She has had her own single woman art shows as well as been involved in numerous group shows. A couple of the highlights in her career were the McMichael Collection Volunteer Art Show and the Artists Project. Her goal is to keep growing as an artist and expand the creativity in her thinking. She now works predominantly in acrylics with the occasional foray into oils. Light, water and the sense of space are three of the elements she likes to focus on.
