MY NAME IS SHELBY RIDER
I am an American fashion designer and fine artist/illustrator. I am currently the Senior Designer for Slim Factor-a women's sportswear brand designed in NYC for Dillard's retailers. I enjoy doing freelance art, graphic design, and creative writing on the side, but I am looking to pivot, hoping to consolidate all of these mediums into a career as an author/illustrator. I am currently in the early stages of querying my first novel to literary agents!
I received my BFA in fashion design at Virginia Commonwealth University. I also studied at Santa Reparata in Florence, Italy. My art and fashion pieces have been exhibited in New York, Oklahoma, Alabama, Virginia, Italy, Qatar, and China.
