Shauna Pickering earned a Bachelors of Architecture at Tulane University and a Masters in Business from Pepperdine University. Her formal training in architecture enables her to render images in a descriptive style. However, in her recent works, she deliberately paints in an expressive manner that allows the physical process of applying paint to become essential to the image she creates. The vibrant strokes of paint she applies convey playful, yet intense energy that invites the viewer to come close, explore and emotionally engage in the canvas' lively surface.
