About the artist
Shawn Demarest is an oil painter living in Portland, Oregon. Each piece in “Gems”, her recent abstract series, begins with pencil lines that ground an initial expressive impulse to the panel. Layers of paint are then built up, glazed, and cut-in over days, adhering to the form of the initial lines. There is no expectation or plan, just curiosity and often joy as the image evolves. This work represents a study in presence, color, line, and intuitive response.
Shawn is a 2012 & 2015 RACC (Regional Arts and Culture Council) grant recipient and exhibits frequently in the Pacific Northwest.

About the piece
Edition dimensions reflect actual paper sizes, not the printed image itself. While we try to maximize image size on all prints, a minimum border of .5 inches is left to allow for easy framing.
