“As far back as I can remember,” Shawn says, “every part of my life has felt like a work of art- the way I arranged my toys, the direction I chose when walking the aisles of the grocery store, or the collection of notebooks I picked out at the beginning of a new school year. It seems as if my memories are snippets of organized color and movement.” Haynes goes on to add: “As a South Carolina native, those visual snapshots are framed with smells and sounds of the diverse landscapes and varied cultures that have made me whole. These sensations are ever present as I attempt to visually express impressionistic and abstract renditions of the compositions in my mind.”

Haynes is an alum of the University of South Carolina, where she received her BFA and MAT. After years of teaching high school artists, she now works full time as an artist, “dreaming of new ways to express her eclectic visions.”
