Artist / Personal Statement
Born and raised in the Upper Midwest, Shawna draws deep from the winter-forged well of her over-active imagination. Her folk-style paintings explore many topics such as science, metaphors, nature, humor, patterns, paradoxes, fairytales and a wide variety of musings on domestic subjects. Shawna graduated in 2000 from the University of Minnesota - Duluth with a BFA in Studio Art, Emphasis on Drawing and Printmaking. She has exhibited both locally and nationally. Shawna lives with her verbally talented husband(Eddy), their twins and a menagerie of critters in a lively neighborhood near lovely Lake Superior.

Thanks, Shawna. I am glad you were touched by my painting, ANCIENT OF DAYS. I was looking through your photos, and it looks like the Lord speaks to and through you in His trees and their roots! My inspiration for the painting was from a hike through Hocking Hills, where I saw many great trees growing out of huge boulders.

Hi Shawna!  Nice to be your art friend! I have been to Duluth many times.

My Mom grew up there and I spent many of my childhood weekends riding up to Duluth (from Mpls.)on a Greyhound bus to see my

very favorite cousin who still lives there. 

The metaphor of the tree is unlimited isn't it?  I like your work too!   -W
