About Shauna

In my abstract mixed media pieces you will discover a human figure, which represents the self. I add layers of color, shapes and texture with both traditional materials; paint, ink, pencil and non-traditional materials; tea leaves, coffee filters, clay. I interpret these layers as varied life experiences we all go through and shape us as individuals. These layers both hide and reveal the self.
