This piece was created by first mounting cotton rag paper to a cradled wood panel, then layering encaustic paint and melting chalk pastel onto the surface.  

This painting has raw wood edges and is wired for hanging.

Getting to Know Shaina

Shaina’s figurative work spans the range from realism to abstraction, a dichotomy which she finds to be an ongoing inner conflict within her work. “It’s a search for balance and subtlety,” she says. Shaina is also captivated by the relationship between the beautiful and the grotesque, as seen in her varying presentations of the female form. She works from her own source imagery in a process that includes underpainting, layers of paint, and glazing. When she’s not painting, Shaina also makes tiles and pottery for a local ceramics shop.
