Shelby Donnelly is a fabric-based artist working in Philadelphia. From January to May of 2012, Shelby attended The Cité Internationale des Arts, an International Artist Residency in Paris, France funded by an ambitious Kickstarter initiative. While there she explored the current state of leisure and began a series of sewn and printed collages that use images from French cinema, photography, dreams and observations. In September 2012, Shelby started her own business,2-Sided as a way to explore themes of leisure in functional and unique artist multiples.
2-Sided is a growing Philadelphia based brand that is working to create a series of handmade blankets, dolls, and other home products related to Ms. Donnellys artistic practice.
