A home studio in Waxhaw, North Caroline


Oil, pastels and mixed media on canvas


Shannon Woodford is a professional artist living in Waxhaw, North Carolina. Shannon works largely in florals, using the deceptively everyday nature of her subject matter to explore the hidden depths of their unexpected appeal. She balances her appreciation of classical botanical illustration with the works of the French Impressionist Masters. She manages to combine the sensibilities of both movements in her paintings, along with a refreshing touch of modern abstraction. Shannon draws most of her inspiration from her home state of North Carolina. She actively looks for vistas of imperfect, or wabi-sabi, beauty, searching out under-sung flowers (or even weeds) to coax forth their raw, wild charm.
