Courtney Shelton

Manassas, VA
Courtney Shelton, (B.F.A, art History, 1997) influenced by traditional sewing and folk-art techniques learned from her mother and grandmother, incorporates textile, embroidery, painting, and language to create contemporary hand-stitched multi-media images that are both playful and thought-provoking. The quiet timelessness and allusions to femininity, heartache, nostalgia, and desire in her work provide an inward glance into this artist’s creative mind.
