Bayberry L Shah is a contemporary American artist. Recently, a new passion has crept into her psyche. Ancient places have always been alluring - a standing stone in a field, a dolmen with massive capstone or symbols in a passage grave. She uses her photography to collect images from far-flung locales such as Malta, Brittany, Ireland and Scotland, inspiring a focus on early-human artforms. Her new painting series, “Dawn of the Creative Spirit,” seeks to bring forward the echoes of our ancient ancestors using modern mediums to demonstrate the common love of beauty that we share with those early artists.
From an early age, Bayberry excelled in art and won regional painting competitions while in High School. Life and career took her from Kentucky to New York where she reignited her love of the arts and began painting again, participating in local exhibits. Bayberry’s love of nature inspired her to delve deeply into the macro-photography of flowers and plants. After years of photography around the world, she created a series of paintings which were exhibited in one-woman shows at the Atlanta and Memphis Botanical Gardens as well as in Helsinki, Finland.
Bayberry lives in Atlanta, Georgia
