FRESH FUN SHINY SURF ART
Aloha, my name is Shelly Batha and I am a fused glass/mixed media artist. Inspiration to create my art comes from the surrounding beauty that I so much love and appreciate experiencing here on the Island of Hawaii (Big Island).
Ten Years ago I started focusing on my favorite art medium, glass. Since then I have developed my own unique style that is multilayered with fresh and colorful island designs. Everything I create is one of a kind, freshly fired in my kiln to temperatures up to 1500 degrees, and handcrafted with love, light, and ALOHA. My wish is to spread ALOHA to the world through art. My glass can be found in fine art galleries and specialty boutiques throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
I live with my husband who runs our family farm, my son who loves to surf, beautiful daughter who is going to change the world someday, dog who is our farms’s best greeter ever, and cat that keeps us on our toes in the small town of Waimea. As a full time artist I also enjoy long ocean swims, yoga, hiking, and surf time with family and friends.
Mahalo for stopping by!
