Sheldon Tapley

Careful observation and playful invention are the roots of Sheldon Tapley's art. He loves painting directly from life and hopes that it gives his images greater vitality. Still life is an important element of his work, and has also become the foundation for images that invoke memory and imagination. Tapley is the Stodghill Professor of Art at Centre College, where he has enjoyed working with his students for many years. www.sheldontapley.com
