Shawnie Mirandon creates her original paintings on the backside of Plexiglas, using acrylic paints blended with a mix of actual beach elements of sand, shells, and rocks along with hand-painted papers. Most critical to Shawnie is the expression of movement, and through years of  experimentation she discovered how to blend and layer her acrylics on glass, successfully creating the soft look of sea foam, waves, and clouds with mix ins of subtle metallics.
