Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to keep everybody up to date with my newsletter. I have 3 upcoming exhibitions, along with some new artworks. Recently, I started a series of conceptual/narrative paintings. These wonderful paintings are inspired by story's from my life as well as worldly issues affecting women. They show we can transfer the darkness to light in our life, by believing in our ability to change.

I am excited to announce that my conceptual painting, "My Life Flies Away Like A Dream, Why Should I Stay Behind," has been accepted for Exhibition SEELE und GEIST (Soul and Spirit), October 10th through October 30th.

The virtual opening reception via zoom is on Saturday, October 16 at 1 pm. Click on the painting to be taken to Shalla's latest website;
