Booth #206

Artist Bio:
Shima Shanti paints with beeswax and fire. Her impressionistic encaustic paintings of water in motion are inspired by the natural elements.

Layering bold brushstrokes of molten wax and pure pigments onto birch panel she creates a rough-yet-refined texture. Then firing with heat she smooths the wax to a satin-smooth finish creating a depth of luminosity that draws the viewer beneath the surface.

Growing up in Big Sky Montana forever connected her with nature, giving her an innate sense of color and composition. She never expected to become a successful, collected abstract
impressionistic painter. However, years after moving to the coast of California, and after an established career in the corporate world, Shima felt that unrelenting desire that all great artists have to create.

She is both humbled and inspired by the patrons who have acquired her paintings as well as the many galleries across the country who carry her work.
