Instructor Bio

Michelle (Shelly) McDermott is a Mashpee resident and retired from education to move Cape Cod a few years ago to pursue her creative passions.  Earlier in her career, she attended art school and over the years has taken courses and workshops in new mediums to develop her abilities.  She has worked in acrylic, watercolor and now alcohol ink.  Shelly is a former potter that worked with clay through wheel throwing, hand building and Raku techniques and taught classes in that medium in her studio/shop.  Shelly is currently a juried, exhibiting member of the Falmouth Artist Gallery and True Grit Gallery in Middleboro, member of the Cotuit Art Center, and has had a one-person show of her paintings at the Maser Gallery in Falmouth.
     

Shelly has a BS in Education from Bridgewater State College; a Master’s degree from Lesley College in Integration of the Arts into the Curriculum; she taught elementary and middle school students for 25 years before retiring.

      Shelly uses photos and sketches of her nature hikes along shorelines, and forests to bring realism and details to her paintings.  The mediums she currently uses are primarily watercolors and alcohol inks.  Both of these mediums allow her the freedom to express the magic of nature’s colors, textures and its changing shapes on paper.   Painting is her way of expressing and sharing the beauty in nature she experiences.
