J.D. Shanley (a.k.a. Jessica D. Shanley) is a creator of small polymer clay sculptures, acrylic paintings and mixed media art works. 

Originally from New Jersey, J.D. studied art, interior design and art history in college. She has written freelance articles about local artists, interned at museums and galleries, and has taught PK - 5th Grade art classes.

Along the way, J.D. has continued to create and produce art, eventually delving into polymer clay, her medium of choice.  J.D. particularly enjoys creating polymer clay sculptures based in horror/fantasy, with a mix of vintage and geeky cuteness.

Presently, J.D. can be found selling her various polymer clay creations, fine artworks and prints online through her Etsy Shop and at DC/MD/VA art shows and conventions.



I am a creator of small polymer clay sculptures, 
acrylic paintings,
and mixed media artworks.
I also create polymer clay charms, jewelry & accessories. 
I like to dabble in all different mediums.
Vintage inspired, geek at heart!
