Growing up, Shelley Hitz says she never saw herself as artistic or creative. S0, she never considered art as a career option – until she was 41 years old. Some might call her an “accidental artist,” but she says becoming an artist was definitely NOT an accident.
As the author of more than 40 books, Shelley Hitz has had two major career shifts. She started as a physical therapist and then later became a prolific author, which led to her working with other authors to teach them how to become successful, published authors themselves. But in 2016, while writing her book, Broken Crayons Still Color, she was looking for an artist to create coloring pages for the book. And that’s when she felt called by God to create her own work. After that… she became more and more involved with her art and today teaches online courses about art, speaks at art conferences, and has an online store where people can purchase her beautiful watercolors and inspirational greeting cards. You can see more of Shelley’s work on Instagram. She’s an amazing person and I’m thrilled to share her story with you!
