Meet the Artist

Shirley Babcock (Paint by Number Series)

I began painting as a hobby in 2005 and opened my art business in 2012. After graduating from Business Administration – Computer Information Systems, I spent 15 years in the IT Industry. I became interested in art after researching the history and culture of my ancestors. My others’ heritage came from the Kwakwa̱ka̱ʼwakw (Dzawada’enuxw) & Coast Salish (Shuneymuxw) First Nations. My father’s heritage came from French Canadian. In 2017, I became a member of the Dzawada’enuxw First Nation. I created my own style using the basic forms of the Mid Coast Art Style. My primary medium includes acrylic on canvas and drums. I began designing the Paint by Number Series in October 2018 and used those images to create the Colour by Number Book June 2019.
