Shauna’s Artist Statement
Photography is my passion. I began shooting at age eleven with a little Brownie, but not until I dared to enter a photography competition at the Ankeny Art Center did I allow myself to really share my passion. To believe there are others who enjoy …the art I create was the greatest award I could have received from the event.
Every individual, animal, plant, and object has intrinsic beauty. Behind the camera I can take the time to see, hear and feel the story or rhythm being projected. We all color our worlds with our own mixes of paint and I hope to capture moments, colors, lines, and reflections that will inspire folks to slow down and enjoy life’s simple pleasures or see the scenes of everyday life in a new or different light.
The current exhibit I am working on includes photographs of buildings, bridges and sculpture in the cities of Iowa and beyond. Each photograph has been altered to reflect the vision and sensation I experienced. They are each printed on canvas and displayed frameless giving them a distinct texture and boundless presentation. The work has evolved, like me, with the move to a new city and a new life. There is not just one inspiration that moves me to shoot photography but a lifetime of inspirations and experiences. Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe are two artists who each independently created a lifetime of work that truly reflects his or her own vision. I find this quite admirable and I dream to walk quietly down the same trail.
