Shannon Amey’s work explores identity as it connects to lived experiences and origin stories from individual to cultural points of view. Her artwork is a translation of emotions into abstract expressive forms. The artist's paintings illuminate notions of identity extracted from personal memoirs. Shannon’s life and work have taken her around the world, both as a visitor and a resident. The artist has adopted a somewhat transcultural identity as a result. Exposure and immersion to different cultures breaks barriers and creates opportunities for understanding and growth. Shannon was born in Canada and now lives in Finland.
The artist is primarily self represented and work can be acquired directly from her website.
