The Zodiac Collection

Original Mixed Media and Resin by Shirley Bales
Find your True Direction
Your true nature is stable, loving, honest, courageous and peaceful — this truth resides in all of us. When you take the time to slow down and listen to your intuition, you gain clarity and are able to pursue a life with authenticity. Sometimes the smallest of things, can ignite a passion leading you to who you were meant to be.
I offer contemporary Scandinavian frames with mat, printed on finely textured archival cotton paper, or if you prefer a larger impact, select the poster style canvas print framed without the mat. Unframed prints are available too.
I print in studio, using a top of the line Canon Fine Art printer. I use only the highest quality, finely textured archival fine art paper and canvas, producing outstanding clarity and detail.
Gift Wrap & Packaging
Please join me in celebrating the wonder that surrounds us. Let it renew your spirit and awaken you, to finding wonder in your life, as you move forward with a renewed desire for connection.

Testimonials of my Collectors

I absolutely love this print! Shirley was so helpful with questions I had as well. Bought it and two others for a set of three and I’m in love!
I sent this to my Mom for Christmas, and the seller was wonderful about sending a sweet note with the pic. Incredibly beautiful artwork!
I reached out to Shirley inquiring if she could do a specific picture and ship it within a few days as a special gift for a friend. She replied right away and committed to completing it in time, and even consulted me on modifications of the picture. It turned out perfect and better than I imagined! My friend loved it. Thank you Shirley! I highly recommend her for any custom paintings.
So amazing! The artwork is gorgeous and the item packaging was perfect. It shipped super quick and really can’t say enough nice things about this purchase. Thank you!

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. 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  paint in mixed media and oil and love color! My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful.
