Casually beautiful in her green dress, "Gladys" is sharing a joke with a friend, perhaps it's "Lucy" or maybe "Pepe". Expressive facial details and a spirit of "joie de vivre" are hallmarks of Shelley's life like sculptures.
A Little Company describes their work as portraying "the laugh, the joy of living, the diversity" of people in communities. Hand painted resin cast sculptures from artist's original bronzes. Since the artist sculpts these figures in a non-hardening oil-based clay and the piece is cast, she is able to work for several months on a piece to capture exactly the expression that speaks to her.
