I create commissioned and available pieces for sale in oil, mixed medium, and acrylic on canvas and acrylic paint pour art.
My faux art consists of a wide range of finishes. Glass beads, metallic, wood graining, marbling, and glazing.
Mural creations are painted specifically for the client’s individual style. They range from soft watercolor effects to bold abstracts.

More about what I do
I started some faux finishes on a small scale in the mid-1990s and starting in the early 2000s began professional schooling. Most of my products are from professional faux lines or professional artist lines. My gallery provides a reflection into all the different avenues I have used faux in collaboration with homeowners, decorators, and designers.
I am now sharing my wealth of expertise and knowledge with others through exclusive private coaching and consulting sessions.
I am often asked if I have attended school for faux finishing. The answer is “yes.” In 2002 I started my first professional class with Faux Effects in Seattle, WA. I specifically chose them for their environmentally friendly products, range of product creativity, and being a professional faux artist line. I also use Modern Masters and artists’ products from Proceed. New products are constantly on the market and it is our goal to keep up to date and provide the most innovative finishes for our clients.

Shiree’s Shopping List & Affiliates
Artist | Owner
Shiree is the oldest of four girls, born in Newport Oregon and growing up in southwest Montana. She comes from a hard-working family with her father as a logger and later owning a drywall business. All four girls worked in drywall and much of Shiree’s knowledge and love for texture comes from working with her father.
Sketching and painting were something very much apart of her childhood. In the mid-1990s Shiree was very interested in designer wall finishes and by 2002 made the decision to take professional classes from Faux Effects International and launching her own professional business. Throughout the years she has also taken mixed medium, oil, and watercolor classes from local artists in Bozeman, MT and Naples, FL.
Being very interested in the chemical process of mediums she is always creating and trying new and fresh approaches in creating decorative finishes and abstract art.
Always drawn to the ocean Shiree moved to Naples, FL in 2005 to present. Abstract art has always been a passion and in 2007 she began commissioned pieces in oil and mixed medium.
Loving texture, fluidity, and dimension in 2017 Shiree began creating paint pours using metallic’s and mica to create her envisioned pieces to acrylic.
