I truly appreciate your support and am thrilled to have you be a part of my creative journey. Download your free digital copy of my book Bugs and Botanicals - The Interconnectedness of Nature. (PDF)
Internationally exhibited and award winning artist Shannon Amidon presents her collection of 50 pieces of artwork created in 50 days for the Sanchez Art Center 50|50 exhibit. The 8.5 x 8.5 full color, art book contains beautiful and intriguing imagery exploring her theme of Bugs and Botanicals – The Interconnectedness of Nature.
Amidon’s imagery features elements of geometry and symbolism
with a variety of insects and botanicals.
Each piece was created with the ancient medium of encaustic (molten beeswax) and incorporates a variety of vintage paper ephemera, 23k gold leaf, thread, glass beads and more layered beneath the wax.
The paintings are all titled after botanists, naturalists or entomologists, encouraging the viewer to look up the names and learn more about the wonders these scientists contributed to the world.
