Artpiece: “Crack My Neck” Sculpture Abou

“Crack My Neck”

About the Artist:
Shelley Wheeler:
Shelley grew up in the Midwest, along the Missouri river, and she carries with me that small town attitude. She claims to be part of the last generation in America who did not have all the technology we have today while growing up. I was forced to use my imagination and I thank the universe for that every day. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who has supported me both emotionally and artistically making the starving artist part of my story a struggle but giving me the freedom to pursue my dreams.

Personal Statement:
When you are an artist, all you can think about is art. I am either creating some kind of art work, or I am thinking about creating my next piece of art. I don’t know if it’s good art, that’s not for me to decide… I leave that to the art critics. I am only racing myself in this game, and as long as I am giving it my all, the rest of it is out of my hands.
