Shah is a full time watercolor artist residing in Sanibel Island. He graduated 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, he started off 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 in Southwest Florida has supplied him with an endless array of subjects; Wading birds on the beach and at wildlife sanctuaries, classic automobiles at local car shows and popular landmarks all around. 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.
