Shannon Amidon will be the demonstrator.
Shannon creates mixed media artwork primarily concentrating on the ancient medium of encaustic painting. She incorporates natural, upcycled and repurposed materials, breathing new life into materials that would otherwise be destined for a landfill. Using environmentally safe and sustainable practices is very important to her. In addition to upcycling discarded objects and materials, she also makes her own paints using natural earth pigments and binders.
