Artist notable for her figure drawings and cloth relief heads. She did a foundation year at Central School of Art & Design, 1972–3, gaining a degree in painting from Chelsea School of Art, 1973–6, then her master’s at the Royal College of Art, 1976–9. Commissions included drawings for Oxford Playhouse Company and Manhattan Theatre Club Theatre, New York, both 1981. Among mixed shows were Artist of the Colony Room Club:a Tribute to Muriel Belcher, Parkin Gallery, 1982, and Whitechapel Open Exhibition, Whitechapel Gallery, 1983 and 1984. In 1998 Michael Parkin held an exhibition, Portraits of Francis Bacon, which stemmed from Shenstone’s close connection with Bacon after he had enthused about her degree show at the Royal College in 1979.
