artist of the month

Shay Allen

Painting, drawing, creating mixed media wood sculpture, and metal casting are among the many artistic endeavors enjoyed by Shay Aubrey Allen. Shay's first memory of honing her creative skills was when she was very small, sitting at her plastic desk, trying to draw a red heart but not yet able to round the curves.

She took it as an opportunity to look at it as it was and turned these not-yet-hearts into cats. And so began her love affair with drawing cats and her interest in following her art where it chooses to take her.

She has studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, as well learning first hand in the studios of fellow artists, and finds never ending inspiration outdoors in the company of her vulture, starling, deer, and possum friends in the hills of Southeastern PA.
