I'm Shelly (Shellz-art) and I am a professional concept artist, illustrator and transatlantic sailor from Ireland.
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, high seas, survived pirated waters and tornadoes, trekked across an entire island and up a volcano, explored around in an army tank and submarine, 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; with experience in the gaming industry and the book/comics industry. I specialize in character concepts however I have also created environments, weapons, vehicles, assets, UI designs and more.
I'm currently working as the lead 2D artist on an RPG project based in San Francisco.
