Shirley is a sculptor and a design professional, she resides in New Delhi. She graduated from National Institute of Design in 1999 specialising in ceramics.

Her work is quirky and humorous and there is a strong element of storytelling in all that she creates. She has worked on various commissions for hotels and domestic spaces.
She was at Indian Institute of Craft and Design in Jaipur as a senior associate professor and taught at the National Institute of Design, Ahemedabad.
She strongly believes in being a master of ones material and thinks technique informs the work as much concepts can, her approach to her own work therefore is on similar lines, respect towards ones materials, using them appropriately and imaginatively, for the right reasons and with minimum waste or damage to ones environment.
She works mainly in ceramics, but also delves into mixed media and sometimes paper.She is open to interesting commissions for private and public spaces. Her work can be purchased through the website for New Delhi and NCR regions.
