Shelley A. Cost

Biography
Shelley Anne Cost

Shelley Cost is known for the exceptional warmth and life reflected in her oil paintings. Graduating with a fine arts degree from UCLA, Shelley joined her talented father, James Peter Cost, in the Cost Gallery-Carmel for twenty-nine years. Recognizing the widespread appeal of her work, the prestigious Pebble Beach Company, Golf Links and Resorts, asked Shelley to provide paintings of golf and other scenes within the property. Recently, she has been selected to provide artwork for the 2010 US Open. Originals and their reproductions are now available at Images Gallery, directly across from the Lodge at Pebble Beach.
