Spotlight Architect - Jeff Shelton


Santa Barbara local, Jeff Shelton is known for his whimsical and uniquely beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired buildings around town. A 1983 graduate of the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture at the University of Arizona, his local Santa Barbara roots are evident in his ability to weave the regional architecture with his own twists of colors, patterns and textures to create visually vibrant buildings. Shelton describes Santa Barbara as a grand fabric of white buildings and hopes that his buildings are adding “interesting little threads” into the Santa Barbara tapestry.
