Shel C is a collage and mixed media artist living in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. She is a self-taught artist who comes from a large family of ‘makers.’ She has been doing arts and crafts her entire life. She attributes her creativity to always having art materials available to her from the minute she could grasp them.

Shel’s very favorite art form is mixed media collage. Specifically, a paper painting style of collage where tiny torn bits of paper replace paint strokes to create pieces on canvas or wood panels. A side effect of this love is making collage paper. Favorite techniques for making collage fodder are using gel plates and well-designed stencils with all types of media or doodling abstract forms, mark making and resist techniques.

Shel’s main form of artistic sharing is her active YouTube channel. She feels that she is contributing to the health and well-being of her audience by teaching them and encouraging them to be creative in their daily lives. She also occasionally teaches classes in person. She shares management of an art community online as well with monthly and daily challenges offered. She does weekly art livestreams about art topics on a shared live channel. See what Shel shares with art inclined people:

Saguaro Scene Stencil by Shel C Saguaro Scene

The Saguaro Scene Stencil by Shel C was inspired by a hike she went on in the Catalina mountains. Shel came upon a trail meandering to the left with a line of saguaros going along the edge of the ridge. There was a bench at the top to sit and take in the sun rising over the mountains creating beautiful warm colors. It was something to recreate in her art and she hopes you will use this Saguaro Stencil to create something beautiful in your art journaling and mixed media painting.
