Born in Oklahoma City, Shelbi Nicole spent a short time in the Sooner State before moving to Houston. Aware from a very early age that painting and drawing were essential to her identity, she continually explored different shapes and forms of abstract art through her formative years.
She eventually relocated to France, where she had access to a range of art museums, and truly started to explore herself as an artist. She then headed to Miami and developed a passion for bright colors and vivid shapes, which are very much a part of her signature look today. After living in Miami, she headed back to Texas and obtained a bachelor's degree. Since then, she’s been creating a name for herself in the Houston art scene and maintaining a small studio space in Houston. Shelbi Nicole’s work can be found in public and private art collections, and has been seen in numerous exhibitions.
