Shirley Cresswell



I am a self-taught and have developed my own style and technique painting photo realism in acrylics. By applying paint in many layers, I bring to life scenes capturing the beauty forever and evoking special memories. “Our beautiful beaches inspire many of my paintings.

To feel like you can walk into a painting, feel the sand, the light breeze and see the waves crashing in. I like to think that the painting is like looking out the window at somewhere you would love to be.”

Commissions welcome.
