Shawna Moore is an established, professional painter and encaustic artist living in Whitefish, Montana. She exhibits her work nationally in galleries and regional museums. Anchored by the use of color and the immediacy of art making, Moore has spent the past 20 years developing and refining her artistic process and intention. Her art integrates elements of painting and drawing, and reflects both her education in architecture and fine art, and her inventive and experimental nature. In recent years, the ancient method of encaustic painting is Moore’s medium of choice. This unique and dynamic technique incorporates pigmented bee’s wax, which is heated, re-worked, etched and scuffed to achieve dimensional depth. As each layer cools, another can be applied, resulting in a radiant and complex terrain of light, color and texture. Her work is represented locally by Telluride Fine Arts.
