artist statement

Shawna Cross makes abstract work that allows felt moments to become physical realities as she combines the psychology of color with the creation of form and rhythm to stir the senses. She was raised in northern Vermont and, infused with a large sense of wanderlust, studied in universities between the Adirondack region of New York, western Europe, and New York City; eventually receiving a degree in painting and drawing from Plattsburgh State University in 2007. She has studied under several contemporary New York artists, filled 19 notebooks with poetry, and at the start of 2009 became one of the founding members of Borough Gallery & Studio in Burlington, Vermont, where she currently works, and resides in Middlebury.
