2019 Artists


Shanon Playford

Hello. I am a series focused artist; I view each project as a separate collection/exploration. For each set of works, I select a theme with specific parameters: the subject(s), scale, support, style, mood, number of pieces & medium. Occasionally, series are overlapping, or are issued in parts, while others can be quite distinct, almost as if they were painted by a different artist. This way of working satisfies my unending curiosity of subject, persona, & an insatiable need to learn new knowledge, skills & techniques. I work primarily in oil, but also in pencil, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic, pen & ink, ballpoint pen, paper collage ... & whatever else I come across. Most of my work is completed on canvas, but I also work on wood panels & paper, (& even marble stones, that were gathered on our trips to Greece).
