SHANNON GOINES, EXPRESSSIVE PAINTER
Travel inspires me, music moves me and color makes me happy.
India ink, pastels, acrylics, charcoal and pen
I grew up in Atlanta with an artistic mother, who was also encouraged by an artistic mother. Oil paints, turpentine, paint brushes, sketch books and art shows have been a part of my life since my childhood.
For over 20 years I have focused on painting in different media and trying new styles. While in school I developed strong interests in the connections between painting and photography, as well as both architectural and interior design. During a summer semester I studied art history and photography in Cortona, Italy; an experience I’ll never forget and still carry with me every day.
Living in Lake Claire among so many talented people has been very inspiring and I hope to continue to be involved in the arts of Atlanta.
For many years I have spent a great deal of time painting animals of all shapes and sizes, and I’m ready to try something different…so stay tuned.
My work can be found in many homes and galleries around Atlanta and the South.
