Joanne Y. Chaplin-Shuman

The photo-realistic and abstract movements heavily influence Joanne Chaplin-Shuman's
painting style. Her incorporation of mixed media into the work takes abstract expression to an
advanced level by juxtaposing various materials to represent her ideas and life interpretations in
the paintings. While using acrylic or oil as the foundation, Chaplin-Shuman creates depth,
texture and meaning with elements such as paper, gold leaf, sponges, and other tools.
