Shirley Galbrecht

I’ve loved art since I could hold a crayon. It’s a very natural part of who I am and it always serves as a compass back to myself. I am forever grateful for eyes to see and interpret the beauty of this world.

 

I enjoy working in oils and pastels but I don’t limit myself to any particular medium. My favorite artist quote comes from Elliot Daingerfield, "Art is the principle flowing out of God through certain men and women by which they perceive and understand the beautiful. The office of the Artist is to express the beautiful." There are many definitions of art but this one rings true for me.
