Shirley Cresswell

Shirley Cresswell is based in Hamilton, New Zealand. After an extensive career as a registered nurse, Shirley had a passion to paint. She developed her own style and technique painting photo realism in acrylics, and with success in many exhibitions and galleries is now a full-time artist. By applying paint in many layers she achieves a realist style that captures light in her work.

Shirley specialises in coastal scenes, boats, dinghies and jetty paintings. She depicts these in a realist style that captures light in her work, accentuating light and dark. She loves how something beautiful can be captured in an artwork that people might have otherwise passed by.

A range of Shirley's prints can be found in-store. Message us for details.
