Shelagh Inglesby

Shelagh Inglesby, 34, has been an artist since she was able to pick up crayons, sometimes drawing on walls or in books to her parents dismay. She won her first art contest at seven years of age and since then has won other local and national competitions.

Shelagh attended Ringling School of Art & Design and then finished her art studies at the University of South Florida, majoring in Drawing with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Her strongest art form is drawing, also known as illustration. Illustration is the combination of drawing and painting in various mediums. Shelagh usually uses both hand drawn illustrations and computer programs to produce a finished piece. Besides illustration, she also paints, creates murals, portraits, sculpts, designs web sites, graphic designs, and even designs and produces costumes.

Her favorite art subjects are animals, fantasy, science fiction, and surreal. She describes her artistic vision; "My goal is to reach people with images, to make an impact. I'm torn between wanting to evoke an emotional response and also creating something beautiful to look at. I feel that there is a best solution to every creative problem and I always seek to find it."

Shelagh creates art in a huge variety of styles."I think I'm too versatile. I am truly a jack-of-all-trades artist." Her style ranges from subtle and sophisticated to dynamic and juvenile cartoons. "I think every artist goes through a Renaissance. We evolve and grow constantly seeking the ultimate art expression. First I mastered photo realism, and then moved on to expressive art, art that goes beyond what a camera can do." Her favorite artist is Maxfield Parrish whose work she describes as "breathtaking." Maxfield Parrish was an illustrator known for his fantastic classical paintings involving surreal scenery and lighting. "He captures light and mood much like the artistic genius Leonardo DaVinci and he has the linear drawing skills of Sandro Botticelli (best known for The birth of Venus)," she adds.

Recently Shelagh has been developing her own art business, "Art by Inglesby," in which she offers a wide array of art services from illustrations, to photo montages, to graphic design.
