Welcome to my virtual studio tour.

Living in the Boston area since before my graduation from SMFA at Tufts in 1990 has been both a source of stability and a driving force to explore the globe. My journeys to diverse places like Tibet, the Indian Himalayas, and my artist residency in Vietnam leave imprints in my paintings that depict the ever changing landscape of our planet.


As an artist, one of my key passions lies in providing viewers with a unique glimpse into the inner workings of an artistic mind.  In  2017 I collaborated with neuroscientists in an exhibition of my work, where the viewer had the opportunity to engage in a series of Sensory Carnivals and scientifically validate the creative shift they made during the show.


My work has been purchased by the Fogg Museum, Worcester Art Museum, Art Complex of Duxbury, and for over 200 other collections. Honors include the Grumbacher Paint Prize awarded by Diane Waldman, then Deputy Director of the Guggenheim, the Vasari Paint Prize, the Museum School Print Prize.

Sandpiper  review, April 20, 2022
Dawn Reaching Up to Touch the Sky: Near the front entrance is Sloat Shaw's Unique stone lithograph and monoprint, 'Dawn Reaching Up to Start the Day.' In a chat with Whitlock, Shaw said making art is about creating a language and using an artistic voice.

The 24th annual National Juried Competition: Works on Paper, at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies N.J. is a playground for the imagination, filled with sumptuous shapes and textures, abstract and representational. 

Seventy one works were selected from over  a thousand submissions from across the United States.  Juror Ester Adler is curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Museum of Modern Art.

About the jury process for the Exhibition, Adler said, "I found myself looking for beauty in these submissions, not simply on an aesthetic level, but rather in the shared commitment to the creation of art as a way for artists to understand and shape the world.  I was not disappointed." 

If the juror's choices collectively make a statement, the individual artworks. are the punctuation.

Drawings and paintings on paper, hand-pulled prints, collages, photographs, digital works and paper constructions are thin slices of the human experience. Most are behind glass; some are unframed, exposed, highlighting the substrate's fragility. Paper, like people, is temporary. The print catalog of the full exhibition will be available April 25, 2022.
