Artist Bio

Shelley Kommers is a Los Angeles-based artist and illustrator. Collage and mixed media are her favorite mediums, and she draws inspiration from daydreams, nature, and her everyday life. After studying Advertising at Art Center College of Design, she worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, designed clothing, and owned a small handmade greeting card company. Her latest passion is mixed media collage. Shelley currently lives in a cottage in the woods with her husband and five-year-old daughter.

Artist Statement

I am always on the lookout for beauty, and I find it everywhere: in the decayed, the imperfect, and the ironic; in the small, tucked away places no one else looks.

My work is inspired by memories, the natural world, and my own inner stories. My work is about the poetry that lives beneath the surface of things.
