Shalla Javid is a professional artist accustomed to living life without borders. This has helped her move beyond the self-imposed confines of medium and subject into a exploratory realm of endless possibilities. This Website aptly demonstrates Shalla's painting abilities in a stunning portfolio of nudes, portraits, landscapes, murals, westerns and abstracts.
Although many of the works displayed here are for sale, many others are commissioned pieces that were sold individually, or as part of a series to commercial or private individuals. As an interior designer and member of A.S.I.D., Shalla enjoys meeting with new clients to discuss ideas and is eager to include them in the creative process.
Shalla is Iranian born, but the inspiration to become an artist came during a family trip to Paris when she was eight years old. After years of painting, Shalla has learned to evoke emotion from her work. Her painting of a rose will fill a room with "fragrance"... while a beach landscape lets the viewer feel the sun on their face and sand between their toes. All of Shalla's work is filled with motion and excitement.
Shalla's extensive work with western themes and old cowboy heroes can be seen in many banks, restaurants, and galleries throughout the Midwest. And her old world style murals cover walls in some of the most glamorous homes in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas.
