Birds captivate us with their feathered beauty and ability to fly. In many cultures birds are the messengers between earth and sky, between humans and a spiritual realm. By using myth, legend and poetry these paintings explore our fascination with the themes of flight and migration.
Shannon Troxler is a graduate of the Schuler School of Fine Arts and the Art Student’s League, where she learned a deep appreciation for the craft of classical art while grinding pigments and making her own charcoal. These days she continues to explore new mediums and methods in her studio in Wilson, Wyoming. Her latest passion involves molten wax, a blow torch and the encaustic medium. Shannon’s work explores the natural world we encounter and how we as humans relate to it through myth, poetry and literature. Her work has been featured by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s Birds in Art exhibit, The National Museum of Wildlife Art, The Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibit, and Arts for the Parks, her work is in the permanent collection of the Wyoming State Museum.
