Inspired by ancient cultural myths and scientific discoveries, the artwork often suggests themes related to spiritual manifestations and altered realities.

Process

Shawn’s artwork often combines photography, illustration and digital painting. He uses an iMac, iPad Pro and Apple Pencil with various creative apps including Lightroom, Procreate, SketchClub and Glaze.

Fine art prints are created in-house by printing onto Fredrix professional fine art canvas using a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4100 printer with LUCIA Pro archival pigmented inks. The canvases are then sprayed with a museum grade UV protective acrylic coating. Extra borders are added to the image face to accommodate stretcher bars or traditional framing.

Business hours are by appointment only and a face mask or face covering is required for all visitors.
