In the Art Bar - Shannon Good

Past, Present, Future
Shannon Good, Maker
 
This show represents a sampling of my work over the past three decades. Through the years, I’ve been interested in making things both functional and decorative. I began painting again in the early 1990’s after many years of working in textiles. In the late 90’s my focus was divided between painting in oils and working in fiber. I created handmade felt for several years, designing and selling several hundred felt hats under the label, “Imago”. Life changed for me in 1999 and in the first decade of the new century I concentrated my energies towards building my architectural design business into a more viable means of support. Although I didn’t have a lot of time for it, artwork was a refuge for me, a way to go within and be quiet and focused.
