Shae is an artist and naturalist with a BFA in intaglio printmaking and an MFA in painting. If she’s not making art, she’s usually outside learning the names of things or opening drawers in the research collections of natural history museums. Her work explores modern perceptions that are distancing people from nature, and as a curious layperson, she seeks to find the ideal balance between science and sentiment. Some of her subjects include birds, plants, fish, birds, bugs, and birds.
