Shauna is known for her positive, effective teaching style. Her goal as a teacher is to share the techniques and information that helped her the most in her own artistic journey. Demonstrations are informative and effective, taking a blank canvas to an established painting while discussing the thought process along the way. Shauna has the gift of being able to describe what it is she is thinking as she develops a painting, and each demonstration gives new and useful information.

A generous and outgoing teacher, her individual, specific instruction make her classes a joy for anyone who has an appreciation of the artistic process. Even more, her students come away with a new way of seeing the world.
