Shelby Rodeffer is a Chicago-based painter and commercial artist. Raised in Nashville, Tennessee, she embraces signs of the human hand in both personal and professional work. Her influence comes from folk art and representational art.

Shelby’s most recent work deals with femininity, connection and isolation through the use of female figures, structures and letterforms. She is also fond of traditional sign making as a means of communication and as a practical form of artistic expression. Currently, Shelby can be found sign painting and participating in various public art projects.
