Shelley Micali lives in Arlington, VA with her family and where she paints in her home-studio. She belongs to the Arlington Artists Alliance and shows her work in local venues, including Cassatt’s Café, The Arlington Treasurer’s Office and the Arlington Free Clinic. Shelley has donated works for charity auctions to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society and the Arlington Artists Alliance, and her local church. She has also shown her work in the Gallery Underground in Crystal City, Virginia. In 2014, Shelley won a prize for a painting submitted to a juried show for the Arlington Audi dealership. Shelley has been commissioned for several works of art for various clients.
Though Shelley’s formal oil painting instruction only began in 2008, she has been creating works of art since the 1970’s when she was a girl and exhibited creations at local Washington, D.C. art shows she attended with her mother, an accomplished botanical illustrator. After many years of working in the finance industry and raising two boys, Shelley has happily re-connected with her creative side!
