ARTISTE / Shelleigh OCIO
Shelleigh OCIO

As an artist, I am deeply inspired by the beauty and complexity of our contemporary world, as well as the many facets of femininity that shape our society. Drawing on my experience living in France for over thirty years, studying at les Beaux Arts de Nantes, and my Cornish origins, I create vibrant and colourful works in oil pastels that reflect my unique perspective and technique.

Over the past decade, I have had the honor of exhibiting my work in the west of France, where it has resonated with audiences from all walks of life. I am proud to say that my pieces have been sold in countries around the globe, including the USA, UK, and Europe.

Each one of my works explores a different aspect of contemporary life, often focusing on themes of femininity, beauty, and the everyday joys and struggles of modern existence. Through the use of vivid colors and sensitive and nuanced styles, I strive to create art that speaks to the heart and inspires the mind.

Ultimately, I believe that art has the power to unite us, to break down barriers, and to help us see the world in new and exciting ways. It is my hope that my work will serve as a catalyst for discussion and reflection, and that it will encourage viewers to embrace the beauty and complexity of this incredible world we all share.
