Shannon Amidon
San Jose, California

Shannon’s artwork is made with encaustic (molten beeswax) and collaged vintage paper–old letters, maps, book pages, report cards, and other paper bits she finds in antique stores or at estate sales. The repurposing of these often ephemeral materials gives each piece a history beyond itself, and adds to the personal nature of the art. Shannon works in a studio behind her home, in a garage which she converted herself. 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.

I am thrilled to be a new UGALLERY artist. I look forward to adding new artwork and interacting with visitors to my UGALLERY page. I work in the ancient medium of encaustic. It is a wonderful and versatile medium that has a beautiful luminous quality. If anyone has questions about my art, medium or technique I am more than happy to answer them.
