Currently residing in Chattanooga, TN USA, Shelli Langdale received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2001. She was employed as a wide-area network engineer for NASA upon graduation but shortly resigned from her position to race motorcycles at club-level while living in Atlanta, GA. A perennial autodidact, it was in Atlanta that she taught herself web design and development and continued in this field until 2013. The death of her uncle and a duty of care to an aging and morbid family member brought her to the canvas full time in 2014. Shelli began exploring personal narratives in her paintings that celebrated the ephemerality of relationships.
Shelli has had two publications, and her works have appeared in several group exhibitions.
