About Me

I'm a part time professional artist, meaning I've sold a number of pieces. I've displayed works in been in 4 shows, the most being Art in the Promenade at Bowlingbrook, piggybacked with subsequent show at the Oakbrook Mall. I've compiled 30 or more large scale pieces.

If I were to describe my stuff, I'd say it's neo-classical. I've sculpted, made jewelery and composed various forms of clay, such as pottery and sculpture in my experiences, but now focus mainly on oils and watercolor.

As for history, I've won a few awards for my artwork beginning in 12th grade at the Hallmark Scholastic Art Awards in which I placed 3 out of 3 pieces. In college I won 1st through 3rd in their annual art fair. Recently, in the past 10 years I've been doing large scale canvas, up to 7 ft for thematic shows.

I now want to work on a series of figures, which is why I need models. My views have changed in the past few years dealing with the loss of so many friends to depression. I chose now to depict human empowerment and social commentary that may be provocative, but I hope it makes people eventually smile, or communicate with each other. Of course there is simply art for art sakes, but I will not depict the loss of hope.

"Had a great time working with Shawn! He had a vision for the pieces he was planning and it was fun seeing his references and taking shots for the final working references. I can't wait to see the finished pieces and look forward to working with him again. Perk: his dog is awesome too!" Read less
