Shay works predominantly in traditional mediums such as pencil and pen, but also enjoys painting and working in unconventional mediums. A primarily self-taught artist, Shay studied the arts in high school, in Whitney, TX, and completed an Associates Degree in Commercial Art and Advertising at TSTC in Waco, TX in 2003.
She has had work displayed in various venues in Waco and Austin, Texas, and participates in several art shows throughout the year.
