Shelley Fenton Ash's Biography

Shelley is a member of Fenton’s third generation management team and the youngest daughter of the late Bill Fenton. She joined Fenton’s Sales Department in January of 1982 after graduating from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. Much of Shelley’s time is spent developing the Fenton marketing materials, which includes graphic design and photography. She also serves on a committee that oversees the development of new products.

Shelley and her husband, Danny, who owns an indoor air quality company, have three children – Amanda, Alex, and Ellie. Time with her family is most precious to Shelley, but she also enjoys being involved with the work she loves.

What are Shelley's Keepsakes?

Shelley's Keepsakes are a special collection of limited edition handpainted items chosen by Shelley Fenton Ash, granddaughter of company founder, Frank L. Fenton, for QVC.com.

Shelley has been involved with product development for Fenton Art Glass since 1982. In 1988 she and her father, Bill Fenton, began working together to develop art glass items for QVC. While Bill was a guest on many QVC shows from 1988 until his retirement in 2002, Shelley remained behind the scenes focusing on new products. "I will always have wonderful memories of sitting in Dad's office dreaming up different items for QVC. Dad was so creative, but often had to interrupt and tell me a joke or story during our work sessions. He was so fun to work with!"

Upon her father's retirement, Shelley began working closely with Nancy Fenton, Director of Design, to create the beautiful products you see on QVC. "Nancy and I also have a great time working together. We have similar tastes and normally see eye to eye on most things. This is probably one of the most enjoyable parts of my job...bouncing ideas off each other for new products." George Fenton is also very involved in the approval process of new designs.

Shelley started working on the development of items for QVC.com a couple of years ago and also has appeared on QVC as a representative for Fenton products.

"This collection is designed to offer the collector beautiful handpainted art glass pieces which are numbered and very limited in quantity."
