Shirley owned and operated two travel agencies for twenty-one years, and one of them was among the first to sell online to the public. After selling that business, she turned to making craft, which she had done from the age of ten and learned from her mother. The launching point for her second career occurred at the Fine Arts Center in Irvine, CA and the Revere School in San Francisco where she studied the fabrication of precious metals. Today her exquisite work is sold in more than 120 galleries in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
