Plein Air Artist 


You'll receive my newsletter with up-to-date exhibitions, events and special offers!


Attention to detail and painterly strokes make the plein air paintings of Shawn Escott uniquely his own. From capturing sunrises and sunsets, to painting the light of a fleeting moment, Shawn enjoys chasing the effect of nature‚Äôs brilliance. His major influences are the American Impressionists, Plein Air Painters of America and many contemporary artists working today. 

Shawn studied for a short time at the Lyme Academy of Art but is mostly self taught. He won first place at Plein Fun Fest, Plein Air Palm Beach 2016 First Inaugural Event, with a prize of $1000. His work has been shown at Sotheby's International Realty, the Boca Raton Museum All Florida Exhibition, The Boca Raton Museum of Art School and The Cornell Museum. 

Shawn teaches classes at the Boca Raton Museum of Art School and also holds workshops around South Florida. In 2018, he participated in the prestigious Forgotten Coast Paint-Out as a Florida Ambassador. Shawn is currently represented by The Arsenault Gallery in Naples, Florida, and The Papagallery Artists Association in Boca Raton, Florida.
