Shirley Turner

Self Taught, God blessed talent, that with practice and books,have been able to make a career in art. I do portraits, landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and domestic life, plus murals.
Media: Acrylic, watercolor, soft pastels and pencil
Specialty is murals for Children's hospitals, and Pediatric areas of Health facilities. Have done numerous children's bedrooms, ie; Celestial room in dark blue with all the planets and a comet soaring on the ceiling and hundreds of glow in the dark stars. Above and below the water with sea life , sandy beach with palm trees, parrot sand castle and open mouthed shark jumping out of the water (that is what the little boy wanted).
Major portion of my work is painted on wood that is cut out the shape of the design and it gives it a 3-d look. These can be done in my studio and shipped anywhere in the world. They can also be sculpted in a relief to make them more realistic.
