Vermont artist Shawna Cross makes abstract work that allows felt moments to become physical realities as she combines the psychology of color with the creation of form and rhythm to evoke the id and explore the chaotic circumplex of emotion. She was raised in northern Vermont and, infused with a large sense of wanderlust, studied in universities between the Adirondack region of New York, western Europe, and New York City; eventually receiving a degree in painting and drawing from Plattsburgh State University in 2007. She has studied under several contemporary New York artists, filled 19 notebooks with poetry, and at the start of 2009 founded Borough Gallery & Studio in Burlington, Vermont. She currently resides in Middlebury, where she works as graphic designer, in-house photographer, and web designer for Edgewater Gallery.
