Charleston native Shannon Brown Wood grew up among the marsh grass, tidal creeks, waters and wide skies of the Lowcountry. The constantly changing light and hues of the marsh and water create an infinite supply of inspiration and surprise for artist and audience alike.
Her work, focused on the marshes and waterways she still calls home, invites the viewer to revel in the possibilities that live just beyond the horizon. Often incorporating natural elements, reeds or grasses hand-sewn into the canvas, Wood juxtaposes tactile touches of the real with her own response to a moment of light, color, and wonder beautifully suspended and forever captured in time.
"My paintings are an essential part of me. When I look outside at my surroundings I see them and when I look inside myself I see them as well."
