About Shalimar

Shalimar - Artist

I have never considered myself confined to a single style. I  simply paint what inspires me, and the beauty of the world offers  limitless inspiration. As a nurse (and a hopeless animal lover), I see  love, bravery, kindness, and the beauty of the human spirit every day.  But having been the youngest member of a large family, I have always  felt a special affinity for what is underappreciated and overlooked.  This is one of the reasons I have always been drawn to painting: it  gives a voice to the voiceless, and shows that beauty can be found  everywhere, even in the most surprising places. I have been using art as  a means of self-expression since the time I could pick up a paintbrush.  I have developed my techniques by trial and error, slowly mastering the  use of color and texture to breathe dimension and life into my ideas. All of my works are created with a base layer of acrylic, and oil with palette knife.  I have now been painting  for 9 years, and have sold pieces in Europe,  Australia, and across the United States. I am currently residing in Raleigh, NC.
