Lora Shelley

Lora Shelley is a RISD Graduate, (BFA – Illustration ’94), currently residing in the beautiful Hudson Valley in NY state in a retro ranch-house from the 1950s shared with her adoring Cat, Charley and writer/partner, Rob. She has been exhibiting her original paintings and prints both Nationally and Internationally for over 30 years and can be found in private collections around the globe.


While primarily a Painter/ Printmaker, Lora has experimented in diverse media — including fiber, wood and clay. Through all of her work the thread of her passion and style is evident in her narrative imagery drawn from dream worlds. Worlds of a kinder nature- where one has a moment of reflection to ponder life and feel in each work one’s own story. Her clay work is more playful in nature. She is inspired by everyday moments. An animal lover, she depicts our shared experiences and relationships with the creatures around us.
