using art to reach the disabled and disadvantaged student.
Along the way she designed logos for country clubs, civic organizations,
educational programs, yearbooks, cookbooks, and designed a series of holiday ornaments.
Shirley's art attempts to capture the absolute realism of her subject mater,
including the kind of details that reach out to create a dialogue
with observers. Her art hangs in the US Department of Education

Shirley is currently studying, in the style of the "Grand Masters",
with her friend and mentor, Larry Casso, at The Baton Rouge Fine Arts Academy.

in downtown Covington. Her watercolors, pencil portraiture,
pen and inks, and other works of art can be seen in the gallery there.
