A fun, casual, impromptu, dress up yesterday with Megan Hunt of Black Sheep Ink located on Milwaukee Street in downtown Minocqua.

I'm excited for this collaboration bringing Shakti + Black Sheep together.

Get ready for a blend of Shelley Novotny Shakti Art handmade, eco friendly, wearable art pieces available at her shop.

Shelley Novotny, Shakti Artist, Designer

Living in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, I am deeply attuned to nature, igniting my enthusiasm for eco-friendly mixed media and recycled art. Dedicated to merging natural elements with discarded materials, I craft sustainable, earth-inspired, unique mixed media and wearable art. Handcrafted, slow-fashion, headdresses, garments, accessories, and display creations seamlessly find their place within the enchanting realm of Artistic Alchemy's "Magick Experience" fantasy photoshoots.

In nature, I find balance and calm.  I see inspiration everywhere.  Being a witness to the textures, colors, patterns, and fragrances in nature is truly breathtaking and grounding to me.   The elements I collect seem to find me in a natural way that nourishes my soul.  The same happens when I see lost, forgotten, and discarded objects; I see the potential of what they can be and create to breathe new life into them.   I believe this comes from the core of who I am, my soul essence compelling me to share the Magick with others.


The sacred force of Shakti, divine feminine, empowering, cosmic energy, moves through me as it does the universe.  It’s personified in me as creative power, energetic flow that manifests and embodies, allowing me to express my gifts as expressions of the universe rather than the ego. 

I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
