One of my greatest joys is watching people discover their inner artist and THRIVE. I have grown my own creative practice from a hobby, to a side-hustle, to a profitable full-time business that also allows immense time for play and exploration. You deserve to embrace JOY and bring it into your everyday life.
I’ve been there! After more than a decade of curiosity, learning, growth, burnout, and general life, I’ve built a highly fulfilling studio practice that allows me time to focus on the things that matter.
Inside the Creative Circle we get into real, practical education, honest advice, and realistic applications to help your creative practice take off and THRIVE.

The Creative Circle is a monthly membership for curious souls looking to enrich their lives and explore the possibilities and gratification of a lifelong artistic practice. This membership is going to transform your creative skillset and level up your abilities by delivering monthly education content, a community of curious, empathetic, supportive creatives, and a monthly video Q&A (or happy hour!) with me (Shelby Dillon).
We created The Creative Circle to guide you in becoming the artist YOU have always wanted to be.
With new videos each month, expect to learn new skills and apply them toward different subject matter to expand your practice. We cover a wide range of subjects so that you can try all kinds of different techniques!
Have you ever wondered how the pros do it? How do we stay inspired? How do we keep on creating? How do we juggle life and the business side of things?
It’s not often that someone is willing to pull back the curtain and let you know what they’re working on, challenged by, and wrestling with… but I am!
The Creative Circle is designed to equip you with the building blocks of art and exercises centered around a monthly theme.
Whether you are just beginning your journey or are getting back to basics, we will help you grow creatively by offering fundamentals and demonstrating how to apply them to your practice. We hope you’ll find it’s much easier to thrive and take risks when you have a basis established.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to really develop your own style? Every month, Shelby has a full-length painting demonstration for you to follow from start to finish. From mixing colors, to how to setup your composition, you get a full tutorial.
