Textile Artist. Writer. Teacher

Shelly Stokes portrait 2

I’m Shelly Stokes. I’m a textile artist, author, and teacher based in Chalapla, Jalisco, Mexico. I believe that all people are inherently creative beings – and that creative self-expression is essential to living a healthy and happy life.

The designs and colors of my work are influenced by the bold colors and the exuberant pottery and embroideries from various parts of Mexico. It is a pleasure to live and work in an environment drenched in color, design, and the sounds of life.

Looking for Cedar Canyon Textiles?

While Cedar Canyon Textiles is no longer in business, I have retained a lot of the legacy information related to Shiva Artist’s Paintstiks and their use on fabric in this new site. Contents from my previous Blog are housed in the new Journal, and you can purchase downloadable books on the Books page.
