About Us

Shaun's acrylic paintings capture action and energy in a way described as “activation art.” The intensity displayed in his work illuminates the subjects with brilliant color, stroke, and texture. The expressive images are realistic, yet far from literal. Each painting’s subject possesses intrinsic characteristics that inspire the artist to paint it, such as unfeigned devotion to genuine competition or excellence in the field.
