Attention to detail and painterly strokes make the plein air paintings of Shawn Escott uniquely his own. From capturing sunrises and sunsets, to painting the light of a fleeting moment, Shawn enjoys chasing the effect of nature’s brilliance.
Blain Johnson, a collector, sums up Shawn’s work in a very eloquent way:
“Shawn is a master of emotional painting—a playful fusion of joy and discipline that comes through in each stroke. In addition to accurate rendering of his subject matter, Shawn is able to infuse life, vitality and energy that shows in subtle brush work, bold color choices, and an innate understanding of the elements that make truly memorable paintings.”
Shawn was born in Ohio but has spent most of his adult life in South Florida. He studied for a short time at the Lyme Academy of Art but is mostly self taught.
He participates regularly in juried and invitational plein air events. His painting Delray Beach was awarded first place at Plein Fun Fest in 2016, and Shawn was a Florida Ambassador for the world famous Forgotten Coast Paint Out in 2018. His artwork has been shown at Sotheby’s International Realty, the Boca Raton Museum All Florida Exhibition, The Boca Raton Museum of Art School, The Boca Raton Historical Society, The Cornell Museum and the Plein Air Convention and Expo.
Shawn’s major influences are the American Impressionists, Plein Air Painters of America and many contemporary artists working today. Shawn’s paintings have been published in PleinAir Magazine, Voyage Miami Magazine and the Forgotten Coast Catalog.
When not painting, Shawn teaches classes at the Boca Raton Museum of Art School and holds workshops around South Florida.
