RE: Shelley S. Curtiss

To Whom It May Concern:

I have known Shelley as a professional artist for over a decade. She served as Artist in Residence at EOU from September 1997 through March 1998. She is a productive and disciplined artist with personal style and vision. Her art is deeply rooted in her research of the mythological and she has developed her visual vocabulary to express that aspect of the human condition. Her use of artistic symbolism and concern for content and meaning is exemplary.

Shelley sees the artist's roll in relationship to her community. Her visionary talents transcend the image and engage her audience.
