Shirley Bales Fine Art Exclusive


Eleven Mile Canyon Collection

I love nature. It's the place where I find balance, peace, solace, and renewal. Inspired by the seasons, the sound of the flowing water, I carry with me visions of wildflowers and the longing for freedom to roam and explore.

It's such a Gift!

It's true. I have some lofty goals . . .


Eleven Mile Collection

I want to make art that brings you joy, sparks conversation, commemorates an important moment, place or time. Art as original as you are.

But I know that YOU have some lofty goals too!

Creating a space can be an overwhelming endeavor! Believe me I know! The act of creating makes you more connected to your authentic self.

It's such a gift to be able to share what is close to your heart with the special people you welcome into your home.

I  hope to be a small part of your journey toward living a more meaningful & authentic life.

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. I am a multi-generational painter. While I was practically born with a paintbrush in hand, I formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. My favorite thing to do is paint outside. I learned most of my technical knowledge from the forerunners of the Classical Realism Movement, and paint with historical mediums, primarily in oil. My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful. Now a resident of Colorado Springs, I hope someday soon to take the show on the road in my new RV. Please come along for the ride!
