Getting to Know Shannon

Shannon Amidon is an artist based in Portland, Oregon whose artwork is made with encaustic (molten beeswax) and collaged vintage paper. She uses materials that evoke a sense of nostalgia, such as old letters, maps, book pages, and report cards, which she finds at antique stores or estate sales. By repurposing ephemeral materials, she gives each piece a history beyond itself, and adds to the personal nature of the art. She also makes her own eco-friendly encaustic and oils. “The environment is very important to me, so I use natural earth pigments,” says Shannon. Her love of nature comes across in the motifs she selects, hinting at both the wonder and delicacy of the cycle of life.
