Shelley Prior is a professional watercolour artist known for her realistic approach to a variety of subject matter and has won multiple awards for her work. She has been teaching art for the past 25 years, in the Burlington area as well as internationally. Shelley breaks down the techniques and tools in a very easy-to-understand way and explains the thought process from start to finish. She attended Sheridan College and Dundas Valley School of Art for her art training and went on to work commercially and eventually freelancing and teaching. More recently, classes and workshops have moved online and will continue to play an important role in sharing her techniques to a broader audience.
