Shawn Wilson and the art of Sumi-`e


Shawn Wilson has been a professional artist for 25 years. A native Oklahoman, she moved to New York at 18 years old and within a short time was regularly selling her pen-and-ink drawings to New Yorker magazine.  She studied sculpture at New York's famed Art Students' League and over the years has shown sculpture in galleries in New York, San Francisco and Atlanta.  We are very fortunate to have Shawn showing with us at the Pearl.
Sumi-`e is Japanese ink brush painting which Shawn studied with one of the few bona fide masters here in the U.S., Koho Yamamoto of NYC.
