George Shipperley
About the artist – Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame 2014, Winner, the Artist Magazine over 60 Art Competition 2013. First place in the signature class 2011, Oil Pastel Society. Featured in The Artist Magazine Jan/Feb 2011. Shipperley is a resident of Aurora and his works are inspired by “the poetry of nature, especially trees and how they relate to one another.” He believes the essence of a good work of art should reflect poetry and grace that stirs one’s emotions. The medium of choice that best reflects Shipperley’s interpretation is oil pastel.
