Shannon Heath was born in Australian and is now living and creating in Portland, Oregon. With a natural ability to marry colour, pattern and composition and over a decade working as a designer, the foundations were laid for her next creative endeavour as an abstract expressionist painter.Heath’s signature style employs ethereal pastel palettes building layers in dramatic, emotive tableaux. She works with methods of layering and extraction primarily with acrylics and non-traditional painting tools. The process, the transformation that takes place-building layer upon layer, is something that has always fascinated Shannon. It’s the act of painting itself, which conveys pure human emotion directly onto the surface.
