My inspiration really comes from my feelings. When I’m in love or frustrated or sad, it’s important to be able to work through those feelings—to harness that energy and put it down on canvas.

Translating feelings to canvas isn’t easy. Figuring out how to convey what I’m feeling through my work is a lifelong process.

With these new pieces, as always, I am trying to connect with the audience by giving a sense of myself, my interests, and, more importantly, my style—which is unique to me and which I can build upon.

RSVP:

Join us Thursday, April 25, at the Factory Mark Gallery to see SHEP’s artwork in the exhibition Floating Like a Butterfly. SHEP is a painter who often juxtaposes nostalgic cartoon figures with real-life subjects to portray his feelings on canvas.

RSVP to join us as we open the exhibition.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

SHEP

Jordan “SHEP” Burnham was born on Maui in Hawaii and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. His interest in art began at a young age, starting with doodling and sketching during his classes. However, he committed to art wholly upon attending Tufts University’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), where he completed the Studio Diploma program. While there, SHEP received the Springborn Fellowship, described by the university as “the most prestigious undergraduate award at the SMFA.”
