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.

Hello Alba, Thank you so much, that makes me so happy to hear. I am glad to know it went to a good home!

Hello Shannon, I jus purchased "To Those Who Wait", and I have to tell you that it is stunning. The piece has quickly become one of my favorites of my home collection. The gold beading along with the wax background lend it a complexity and broodingly buoyant energy that urges me to admire it often. Great work! Sincerely Alba Maria

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.
