I'm Shelly (Shellz-art) and I am a professional concept artist, illustrator and trans-atlantic sailor from Ireland. I'm currently creating character concept art for video games and creating personal illustrations in my spare time (with the occasional fanart thrown in for fun!)
My artwork is inspired by my travelling experiences. I have visited over 200 places in 53 countries, states and small islands. I've battled raging winds and high seas, survived pirated waters and tornadoes, trekked across an entire island and up a volcano, explored around in an army tank and submarine, built wigwams, touched a piece of the Moon in DC, sailed over underwater mines, took several road-trips, traded with the warao-indians and barely made it across the Bermuda Triangle in one piece. Just to name a few things! Still in my 20s and currently situated in my home country Ireland; I really enjoy movies, cookies, video games and playing piano / guitar. A stray cat has decided to live with me.
I've worked as a lead illustrator and concept artist for companies based in California, New York, Tokyo, Colorado, Australia and Ireland. I specialize in character concepts however I have also created environments, weapons, vehicles, assets, UI designs and more. I am settling down for a while so I can work in-house if the opportunity arises.
