About Shelley Hall

Art is my passion and my profession. I have worked professionally in the Art Business my entire adult life. After owning my own contemporary art gallery as well as working as an art consultant, I realized my true passion is helping artists to follow their passion and become successful artists. I am an Accredited Art Appraiser with over 20 years of experience with all aspects of the art world, including working with galleries, designers, art consultants, artists, museums, collectors and auction houses. I started my journey with art as a young kid, drawing houses and designing utopian worlds. In high school, I discovered drawing and painting and going to galleries and museums while growing up in Santa Barbara. After getting my degree in Psychology at San Francisco State University, I decided that art was my true passion and went back to get get my degree in Painting and Drawing.

I love discovering artists and sharing their work with interested collectors and exhibition venues.  

I have worked professionally with every facet of the professional Art Business, including Art Galleries, Art Museums, Private Collectors, Corporate Collectors, Emerging Artists, Professional Experienced Artists, Auction Houses, Art Authenticators and Fine Art Publishers.
