BENNINGTON — To view Shelli DuBoff’s artwork is to explore a visual record of the places she’s traveled. Her paintings include depictions of horses on a shore on the Turks and Caicos Islands, lions and elephants in Africa, and dancers and musicians from around the world.

“We’ve traveled quite a bit and spent time in Africa and South America,” DuBoff said. “I absolutely love painting animals, but my second favorite is musicians.”

Most of her work is pastel, with a small number of watercolor paintings. It now adorns the walls of Bonnet & Main Café at the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester.

A longtime resident of Bennington, where she also has her studio and a barn with horses, one of her projects involves scenes around town. She and her husband, Stuart, recently went out and took photos for inspiration.

“We went out at night. My husband is a great photographer,” she said. “I wanted to do something with the reflections of the lights.”

More of DuBoff’s artwork and information on commissions can be found on her website,
