Shawna is a native of Wyoming and does a lot of hiking and fishing in the Wind River Mountains. She has taught art for 30 years, kindergarten and college.
She is constantly inspired by the Wind River Mountains and paints them extensively. No matter what is going on in her life, she constantly feels the need to make art, teach art, see art, and learn more about art.
Although she is primarily a painter, she has been drawn to ceramics with a passion for surface decoration and carving. She is experimenting with a new medium called Quink, using watercolor techniques and excited about the new effects in her paintings.
