A CONTEMPORARY ARTIST
 
ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born and raised in a small town north of Prescott, Arizona, southwest culture and art have certainly inspired Shannon Macey’s artwork, both in patterns and color schemes. Her detailed paintings have been described as looking like hand painted woven tapestries.

Macey has always considered herself an artist, taking every art class in school she had access to, and painting for recreation when time allowed. But, as so accurately stated by Pablo Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Macey, too grew away from her art, only re-discovering her passion while living abroad in South Korea. After a particularly long and lonely winter on a small island, she found that painting was the best way to find peace while being so isolated from friends, family, and even other foreigners. 

These detailed, mosaic styled pieces are painted with acrylic paint on canvas. Each piece takes between 100 and 300 hours to produce, depending on the size and detail of the piece. Please enjoy, and feel free to reach out to Macey with any inquiries.

BEHIND THE SCENES

My new piece, "Granite Vistas," features a nude palette with greyed out green accents. This piece is inspired by the Tucson Mountains - the granite boulders, washed out greenery, and sun-bleached landscape. "Granite Vistas" will add a sense of calm to any room.

No matter where I am,

if I'm painting,

I'm at home.

Meet Charlie, my studio assistant. Charlie was by my side during thousands and thousands of hours of painting. Sadly, he passed in 2021, but his photo hangs in my studio where I can see him every day. 🖤

"Over a year ago I purchased a large original painting that hangs in my bedroom.  It’s the first thing I see each morning, bringing me so much joy and inspiration! I look forward to buying another piece of Shannon’s art soon."
