Shirley Stocks was born and raised in the Little Snake River Valley of Southern Wyoming. She moved to California in 1969 and began her art education where she studied many forms of media, apprenticed in a major stained glass studio, and worked with architects and developers doing perspective renderings. However, she found that her real love was in working with watercolor and drawing.

Shirley and her artist husband, Richard Galusha enjoy traveling and painting. They have taken painting trips around the United States and to Mexico, England, Canada, Nepal, France, Africa and Greece. She paints many subjects but is best known for her western landscapes, wildlife and sensitive botanical illustrations of wildflowers. Shirley is an accomplished intaglio printmaker and has printed for publishers who produce limited edition prints for many well-known abstract artists. She is also owner of Wild Horse Gallery of Steamboat Springs which specializes in contemporary realism.

Additional study has included workshops with watercolorists Roger Armstrong, Phyllis Case Bennett, Don O'Neill, Jane London, Cecile Johnson, pastels with Harley Brown, and oil painting with Clyde Aspevig, Joyce Pike, Steve Elliott, Don Stone, and her husband, Richard Galusha. She has taught watercolor, drawing and computer graphics at Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs, as well as private lessons and workshops. She may be contacted at her studio in Hahns Peak Village, Colorado, a historical old mining town about 27 miles north of Steamboat Springs or at the Wild Horse Gallery located on the mountain in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel in Steamboat Springs, CO.
