I am a multi-media mosaic artist and my passion is to create art that explores and plays with light, reflection, and patterns creating layers and textures to explore and enjoy.

My childhood was spent in Colorado where I was immersed in an enchanting world playing with rocks and in streams, searching out and admiring flowers, and gazing in wonder and awe at the nearby mountains and at the far away stars. This early endearment of the outdoors and the cosmos led to an interest in geology, astrology, and sacred geometry. Looking back to those early days of endless curiosity, I know now that I was drawn to the playfulness of light and the grounding of symmetry.

The memories of light reflecting off water and snow, sparkling hints of mica on pink and black granite boulders, spotting shooting stars in the vast dark sky, and studying the black geometric pattern inside of giant orange poppies serve as inspiration for my art. I study various sciences to deepen my understanding of how energy, color, and symmetry can be imbued into my work. I love working with gemstones and natural minerals for their luster, beauty, dimension, and also for their energetic properties. I find art glass, with its inherent complex patterns, depth, and reflective qualities mysteriously beautiful and intriguing.

I often use mirror as a tool to create light and reflection underneath glass and gemstones as part of the structure. The layers create interesting textures to explore and for light to play off of. I particularly enjoy making decorative mirror frames as they provide the opportunity to explore reflection of one’s surface self as well as the deeper more interesting inner self. I find being surrounded by beautiful materials while gazing at myself shifts any negative energy I might be carrying and brightens my mood.

Ethereal Glass explores and plays with light, reflection, and patterns through the mosaics of Shelley Beaumont. Looking back to early days of endless curiosity, she was drawn to the playfulness of light and the grounding of symmetry in nature. Inspired by the metaphysical, her art seeks to understand how energy, color, and healing can be imbued into art. She uses gemstones and natural minerals for their luster, beauty, dimension, and also for their energetic properties. Glass art, with its inherent complex patterns, depth, and reflective qualities, is mysteriously beautiful and intriguing. Artist Bio Shelley Beaumont is a mosaic artist with a passion to create art that explores and plays with light, reflection, and patterns. She often uses mirrors as a tool to create light and reflection underneath glass and gemstones as part of the structure. The layers create interesting areas for their eyes to rest when exploring a piece. Shelley particularly enjoys making decorative mirror frames as they provide the opportunity to explore reflection of one’s surface self and the deeper more interesting inner self. She becomes a conduit for an energy that wants to be expressed and allows the final design and pattern to emerge organically. She loves traveling both in the United States and internationally for educational opportunities and to attend gem and lapidary shows in search of materials.

Light & Shade: Group Exhibition We awake each morning seeking the light and retire each evening, slowly slipping into the darkness. For this exhibition Las Laguna Art Gallery asked artists to explore the idea and notion of Light & Shade. We wanted to see how they might explore subject such as luminescence, lightness, shadows or blackness. The end result is a unique exhibition that includes works from artists across the globe. Some works are literal, some works are representational and some works philosophical darkeness. Works in this show include acrylic, oil, watercolor, encaustic, pyrography, traditional and digital photography, mixed media, collage, and more. I have "Life is Sweet and So am I" on display.

A few in our selection are new to art but they bring with them a myriad of experiences which helps create and inform their art. We are pleased to present to you The 2nd Half.

CUSTOM MOSAICS


I am interested in helping clients with interior projects.  I enjoy creating art for areas where light and reflection can play with the viewer. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to discuss the vibe, space, and scope of your project.

Mirrors

When I am feeling blah, I find that looking at myself in one of my beautiful mirrors instantly shifts the negative energy. There is something about being surrounded by beautiful materials and colors that sparks joy and improves ones mood.

Interior Wall Art

Mandalas and sacred geometry are wonderful inspirations for wall art. Layers of meaning, colors, textures, and reflections can be incorporated. My works of art that invite viewers to pause and lose themselves for a bit in the meditative qualities created with repeating patterns.

Pendants and Earrings

 I create custom pieces for individual clients as well as in bulk for wholesale customers. I use gemstones, glass, minerals, and metals to create specific energy fields.  With my jewelry materials and intent come together to create unique and beautiful pieces.

 
 
 
I look forward to connecting with you!
