Owner Shelley

Shelley is an educator and creative. For twenty years, she taught students, trained teachers and leadership teams in a fulfilling career in education. During her career, to maintain life balance and joy she created soap, enjoyed knitting and other modern crafts.
Throughout the years, imagining what opening an art studio would be like it led her on a journey to bridge her two passions: education and creativity. CRAFT + LIGHT opened in August 2019 on 2nd Street Naples Long Beach, CA.  She was guided by the scripture, "If you can believe, all things are possible to the one who believes.”

Seven months and COVID-19 hit and virtual classes became the way of teaching. Since then, Shelley has taught over 1000 people not just to make soap, but wood signs, alcohol inks, candlemaking, bath bombs and more. She provides creative experiences that feed the soul and has worked with small and large organizations such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Paypal.  She partners with City governments to curate COVID-19 creative care packages for at-risk residents and is an partner of the Long Beach Black Health Collaborative funded out of the City of Long Beach.

With a heart for community, CRAFT + LIGHT provides creative experiences that allow all to create, have fun and grow.   In her personal time, Shelley is enjoys the beach, creating art in her art studio and spending time with her family in Southern California.
