Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Shirley has been painting for many years. On her arrival in New Zealand in 2013 she has focused full-time on her art, creating abstract paintings in brilliant colours and unique free-flowing shapes flowing from her imagination. She encourages viewers to bring their own interpretation of what they see in her paintings.
Shirley shares Kokopelli Studio with husband Slim Petkau (also in the Arts Trail), set in their Waikanae garden. Her art hangs on walls in Australia, the US, Canada, and New Zealand, and has won her awards such as from the 2017 Rotary Art Show.
