Shawna Moore’s dynamic technique incorporates pigment and

beeswax, which is heated and applied to a wood substrate by

layering. The surface is a visual record of selected memories.

Moore considers her work as a diary of her own life experience

and contemplative journey.


The encaustic medium inherently has the ability to reveal and

obscure, creating mysterious surfaces and reveal- ing depth

within the use of line and color. Moore’s background in architecture

(University of Oregon, 1983-89) and her continual exploration

into the role of art and painting in purpose and place, have

helped create a unique vision in her life and studio. Shawna

Moore lives and works in White sh, Montana. She has been featured

in numerous solo, group and invitational exhibitions.
