Shelley Hull's art has been shown nationally for the last 30 years in venues such as the New Museum of Contemporary
Art in NYC, University Galleries at Illinois State University, Arvada Center for the Arts, Foothills Art Center in
Colorado. Her work is found in many private collections in the U.S. and in the U.K. She has been honored with awards such
as an NEA, Visual Artist Fellowship Grant, Painting in 1984. Her art was selected to hang in the Senate Office of Cory
Gardner, in Washington, DC and is on loan through the Art in Embassies program in Suva, Fiji. Her landscapes
reflect a love of the Southwest, of hiking and of painting the western landscape. Her paintings are contemporary landscapes
of the American West.
For a long time I have been fascinated with the Southwestern landscape. When I moved to Denver in 1997 I was
able to explore and sketch daily, not just in yearly visits. I love to paint the mountains, the desert, cliffs, hoodoos,
moraines, cirques, canyons, valleys, clouds and the vast ever changing western sky.

Paint the Parks
I spend great deal of time hiking and sketching in National, State and local parks so I have decided to join the
Paint the Parks Project and post a
page displaying the art I have made that was inspired by the beauty of our wonderful parks. My life
and work are immeasurably enriched by the time spent in these parks.
