The Artroom was a website that hosted the Beauty & the Beast poetry/art calendars designed by Pat Leslie, Marcus Holt, Amy Shelton and Sandy C. Shelton. Each calendar told a cohesive story using poetry and illustrations. Sample images are below.
1995 Calendar "Like Magic"
- "In 1995, Pat Leslie and I got together to make the first of, now, 5 calendars. While the calendar pages were dated, the story is not. We wanted to share this first amateur poetry/art creation with you. We pulled out what we thought were high points in the life of Vincent and Catherine in their journey to fulfill their destiny. All the artwork is by Sandy Chandler Shelton. All the poetry is by Pat Leslie."
- WAITING IN THE WINGS
- (The Price of Happiness) - the artwork that accompanied this poem is in the gallery below
- I feel a pain
- Deep in my heart.
- An emptiness inside
- Threatens to engulf me.
- I feel I must confide
- That I don't know
- What future waits.
- I feel so deep a loss.
- I know there is
- Much more to life,
- And I must pay the cost.

- DARE TO LOVE
- By Marcus Holt
- In your heart there is such a place
- So good, so warm, so kind, so safe.
- A place to dream of life so sweet.
- Where pain and sorrow are not to meet.
- Open your heart and you will find
- The love that you were meant to know.
- This is our place and now is the time
- But only if you wish it to be so.
