About the Instructor  |  Marsha Shaw

A southern California native, Marsha Shaw received a B.A. and M.A. in Painting from California State University Northridge.  After moving to San Francisco, Shaw pursued an MFA in Printmaking from California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Her work has been shown across the country and her teaching career is expansive. Shaw specializes in screenprinting, bookmaking and wallpaper design.
Shaw’s work focuses on childhood memories, gender construction and concepts inherent within the experiences of women. Derived from domestic experience, her work includes wallpaper patterns, insects, human anatomy, text from children’s books, and stitching. Shaw is interested in alternative printing techniques in particular the use of recycled materials. She uses old vinyl albums as a matrix for some of her work bringing to the surface concepts surrounding the “circle.” The process of printmaking allows Shaw to understand relationships that she feels that she cannot grasp in any other way.
