Shelly Jackson is a local resin artist, haberdasher, and mom. She has two great kids, one who is a dinosaur and another who is a young mad scientist. She travels to Steampunk Conventions and brainstorms wild ideas at the kitchen table with her engineer husband, and when they are not playing dress-up she helps with Indie Reno Artisan Guild and High Desert Steam. She has participated locally in RAW as a finalist and had her work featured in many local stores and galleries. She would rather be in the scrap yard or workshop than at an art show, though, or surrounded by friends talking about their art.
