Shawn Tempesta's Profile
I've loved to paint since my teens, as well as collect rocks, shells, driftwood, old treasures, and anything that can be turned into jewelry, pictures or an assemblage.
My paintings & jewelry both tend to reflect images and memories of places I've visited and lived. Having lived on sailboats and in the tropics for many years much of my art is inspired by the ocean. Now I live on the southern coast of Oregon and am amazed by the change of seasons, the different colors of the sky, the zillion shades of green, the crazy wildflowers, and the incredibly dramatic coastline. Eye-candy everywhere you look...an artist's dream. Not to mention all the cool stuff you find here, like vintage jewelry, agates on the beach and brass bullet casings!
