Shelley Smith is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice addresses such universal themes as memory, identity, and the feminine. Her work often explores conceptual self-portraiture using the methods of digital collage, video, hand-embroidery, and drawing. Smith combines traditional hand techniques and materials with contemporary tools to create work that reflects how identity is formed over a lifetime.

Shelley Smith holds a Master of Art + Design from the North Carolina State University College of Design and lives and works in Raleigh, NC. She is responsible for the creation of The Pink Building Project and is the Creative Director of Anchorlight.
