About the Artist

Shelley Preston grew up on the Caprock in West Texas where the flat plains extend past the horizon, and the setting sun paints dazzling colors across the dusty sky. Here, she fell in love with light, color, and their interplay with emotion, and that first love hasn't faded.

Shelley's life is a study of light: the delicate intricacies of how it wraps around people's faces, falls between objects, and turns golden as it fades. She seeks it at home and abroad, watching it reflect off surfaces and shine spotlit rays through dark spaces. This study fuels her dynamic black and white photography, capturing elegance in the simplicity of a scene stripped of color. She communicates emotion through the intersections of light and patterns - often more clearly than most do with words.

Artist Statement

Shelley is an abstract artist, that captures ephemeral feelings. She harnesses emotion in color, and suspends them in delicate reflections.
