About Shah:

Shah is a full time watercolor artist residing on Sanibel Island. He received his BA from Syracuse University in the late 1980's and comes from a family of artists: fine artists, architects, interior designers, industrial designers and furniture designers. Although he has been painting for the past 20 years or so, he started as a musician but discovered that painting is his most natural outlet and passion. His subjects range from animals to still life and realism. Living on Sanibel Island has supplied him with an endless array of subjects; Wading birds on the beach and at Ding Darling wildlife refuge, classic automobiles at car shows on Periwinkle Place and popular landmarks around the island and downtown Fort Myers and the vicinity. Shah's main goal is to bring some presence and mindfulness into this hectic world and to live a life where inner and outer purposes are aligned. His work is currently on display at:

Tower Gallery on Sanibel Island, Florida. This is the longest running gallery in all of Lee County
