Shelley Remple was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Throughout her life she has always been creating. In earlier years she sewed, quilted, and did needlework-mostly self-taught with trial and error being the main teacher! In the last 20 years she discovered a love of painting after taking some drawing and painting classes at her local art gallery. Her art reflects her love of colour, texture, trees, words and places she has visited but with a special interest in Manitoba.
I create art to express my feelings. I think for hours before I put brush to canvas and continuously ask myself how I feel about a tree, a view, a word, a poem or a song. What colours or textures would best express what I am thinking or feeling? What mood do I want to evoke? I look to other painters to see how they accomplished a beautiful sky or moving water for example. Each of my works of art is an experiment from start to finish and until I’m satisfied that my painting tells a story, I then put my paint brush down.
