Ahoy! 😊 🏴☠️
I'm Shelly; concept artist, illustrator and sailor from Ireland. I am currently creating character concept art for a super top secret video game, and making personal illustrations in my spare time.
I've been a concept artist and illustrator for over 7 years now, working on various projects from all over the world; namely video games, movies, animation, books and VR projection mapping. While I specialize in character concept art, I have also designed environments, props, weaponry, assets, UI, clothing and merch.
My artwork is inspired by my adventures as a transatlantic sailor, where I travelled across half the world to explore different cultures and search for new and exciting things to draw. It has been a huge influence in my creativity and I am always eager to put my inspiration to good use.
I have visited over 200 places in 53 countries, small islands and states. I've battled raging winds and high seas, survived pirated waters and tornadoes, trekked across an entire island and up a volcano, explored in a tank and submarine, took cross-country road-trips, built wigwams, touched a piece of the moon, sailed over underwater mines, 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 now situated in Ireland, I have a love for adventure, movies, video games, martial arts, aquascaping, baking and playing piano/guitar. I have 2 fish, a bunny and an amazing other-half.
