Shirley Mathew-Rogers is a retired preschool teacher. She has been drawing since childhood. Her first masterpiece was on the walls of her front porch, it was done in pencil. She soon discovered her painting skills, when her mother gave her a can of paint and a roller to cover up her work. As a young girl, she dreamed of painting in Paris one day. This dream came true 50 years later, in the summer of 2019. “Never give up on your dreams!” She has been the art director for the Central Virginia YMCA summer programs. Awarded for her organization of the Y Art Week program at the Hilltop Y in Virginia Beach, VA and the author of a children’s book, ‘#WHatWilliBe?’ published in 2019, which can be found on
