Shelby Keefe paints in a bold brush, realistic style uniquely her own. Living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she earned a BFA in 1981 then embarked upon a career in graphic design. She became a full-time fine artist in 2005 and travels around the country painting in plein air competitions, and teaching workshops. Her unique style is becoming noticed nationally, having been recently published in Southwest Art and Plein Air Magazine–both being honored as the cover artist. Shelby was the 2013 PleinAir Magazine Salon Grand Prize winner and is a signature member of American Impressionist Society and American Women Artists.
