Shawn describes her show “This show, Natural Habitat, merges two collections of my work: Human Nature, a sculpture series and Home, a painting series. In these collections natural elements act as metaphor and setting for my experience as a woman and creating a home in a new region. In a previous life I was a theatre director and actor and the love of language is still integral to my work as an artist. Both collections of sculpture and painting have poetry and narrative embedded in the compositions allowing the viewer to experience the work not only visually but also through story.”
