My name is Shelby Silver, and I am a professional ecological artist and educator.
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and reside in Washington County Oregon. My practice integrates marine conservation and ecological restoration with artistic process.
My work explores the many beautiful and positive parallels between age and the natural world and serves to help demonstrate, cultivate, and deepen stewardship values within my community, and additionally supports the power of our collective impact for good when we collaborate across generations.
It is through this work that I am able to look more closely at the intertwining relationships between human kind and nature, nature and human kind, and the overall role they play in service of one another within the cycles of life.
