Contemporary Artist: Shannon Ford
Creating artwork of people and animals whom inspire me, I am drawn to the inner mediation of intuitive painting and find that I most easily express myself with harmonies of unexpected colour, unabashedly bold brushstrokes, and confident challenging contrasts in surface and composition.
During my years creating jewelry and sculpture, I developed a love for working with gemstones and precious metals, and so continue to use gemstones even now, incorporated into my paintings as hand made semi precious and precious “paint”.
Art Lovers and Collectors are welcome to visit my studio by appointment, come to Denman Island and see where I paint, and get a glimpse of the artwork currently on my easel.
