About Shirley Gaines
Her work is a fusion of painting, collage, writing poems and small theater pieces, the next of which will be performed March 2014. Throughout her life she's worked in most media: painting, lithography, sculpture, assemblage and performance art. Because of its fluidity and sensuousness, oil painting is probably her favorite, although she loves it all.
Shirley, resident of Palo Alto for 48 years, lives in Barron Park with her husband, Ed, a geophysicist, their two small, black, rescue dogs, Roadie and Sasha, and, her tuxedo cat, Bella.
