I am a gallery artist with 20 years of exhibitions all over the country. I currenlty have an art gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. I graduated from Platt art and design in 1994. I paint in oils, acrylics and mixed media on every different substraight and can paint every subject.
I have partnered in galleries and major artist websites and have helped artists create, refine and market their work to the public.
I can paint any subject, but there are 4 subjects that I gravitate most to: Landscapes, Seascapes, Abstract and Figureative.
After a long career in the gallery circut Im teaching and painting in the Studio in South Orange County.
I enjoy the feeling of spreading a hand made craft to budding artists. I also enjoy the joy I see in artists after they create a painting.
Great experience all the way around. Bought a couple undervalued pieces.
The total experience is kind of magical. From Shane Townley himself, a great artist who is committed to art and artists everywhere in the world. Offering personal, kind, hands on guidance, inspiration and support to their artists!
Shane is a thoughtful and considerate teacher. No matter what your artistic level is Shane knows how to make you focus on your best self. He does all this with a kind manner and a good sense of humor.
Shane Townley has a tremendous knowledge of the art world. His many years of experience and insight as an artist and gallery owner has been truly helpful. I think his passion for the arts and teaching others is inspiring and motivating.
