Shea Daniel-Youngblood

About

Shea Daniel-Youngblood is a painter living in San Antonio, Texas. She got her first set of oil paints when she was 18 and received an art degree from (Southwest) Texas State University. Shea started painting regularly a few years ago–jump-starting the journey with a plein air class led by Maren Phillips. She just wanted to be a better painter and that is still her primary goal and focus. She likes to travel around San Antonio and the Hill Country, stopping anywhere she feels pulled by a moment, or a shadow, or a stoplight. She is also available for commissions if you have a favorite street corner, house, restaurant, bar or the like, please consider allowing her to paint it for you!

    History of Boerne Art Waddle

    Art Waddle is Boerne’s premier community art show and sale. It’s a festive outdoor event held in downtown Boerne, TX.

    The Art Waddle is part of Boerne’s commitment to the arts. It’s also part of the trend toward fun, informal celebration of painting, sculpture, glassworks, and more. People stroll Main Street at their own pace, chatting with artists, making friends and enjoying the day, perhaps partaking of a refreshment offered by one of the breweries or restaurants.

    The Waddle was created in the “Flats,” Boerne’s funkiest neighborhood. Over the last decade the Art Waddle’s growth and success has shifted the location of the event to the downtown historical shopping district.

    It’s a place for the creative side of Boerne. 
    Named after the ducks that populate Boerne’s Cibolo Creek, the Art Waddle is organized by friends of the arts and Events Off Main. All proceeds are donated to the Cibolo Center for Conservation for Summer Art Camp Scholarships. There is no admission fee to the Waddle.
