About Shan

I have been experimenting with art, and particularly painting, since an early age, but began painting seriously when I moved from Somerset to South Devon, fulfilling a lifelong dream to live near the sea.

Now I find the beauty of my surroundings helps to inspire a wide variety of work, and I am still learning and experimenting with new ideas, processes and media.

Living by the South Devon coastline and nearby Dartmoor, I began a journey of discovery which has led me to meet and learn from a variety of talented and lovely people.

My main subject matter is landscape, which I increasingly tend to take towards abstraction. Collage and mixed media play an important role in my painting. Texture and colour are equally important in creating atmosphere, mood and emotion.
