Shirley Wellstead and In The Now retain copyright of paintings and ownership of photographic images and may continue to use images for prints or promotions.
Shirley Wellstead has been painting since the 1980s - initially in oils and for friends. In the late 1990s she started using acrylics and specialist silk paints. While working for a New Homes builder she had several commissions using acrylic on canvas and specialist paints on silk. These were painted in Abstract and Impressionist styles for both Show Home Designers and home buyers.
Shirley has been commissioned to paint many portraits and pet portraits.
Since moving to Glastonbury, England with husband Ken, the feel of the magical place has further enhanced her creativity. Her love of animals is also clear to see as they appear in most of her paintings.
Shirley has been showcased in multiple exhibitions in the UK.
Painting styles include Impressionist Art, Semi Abstract and Fine Art. Shirley is always open for new ideas and styles, always changing, expressing life and seeing the Love in everything through her art.Top of page

Dispatch and Delivery
When your order is ready to dispatch we will send you an email with the details and ask you to reply to confirm you will be available to receive it via the agreed delivery method.
IMPORTANT: A signature is required at point of delivery by a responsible person.
