Artist Bio: Shawn grew up in Salt Lake City. He attended the University of Utah studying photography, painting, and film making, graduating in 1995 with a BFA, photography emphasis.
In 2003 he was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant which helped build a new portfolio, and gave motivation to move to a larger city. In 2008, he became a resident of a 35 person artist’s community in San Francisco, [a live/ work warehouse operating by consensus, a remnant from the late ‘60s]. Living with a group of professional artists was a beautiful think tank, full of inspiration. Developing his current aesthetic/language over those eight years, he was ready to move on.
Shawn now practices his art in a small town in Colorado, living in a house built in 1890, on the border of New Mexico. He shares his work at the occasional art fair and can be found in a handful of galleries across the country.
