Visual Artist Captures Ancient Wisdom in Her Debut Book

Downers Grove, Feb 7, 2019 ( – Visual artist and poet, Dorothy Bury Shaw, draws inspiration from ancient wisdom for her introspective work, Love Without Distance: A Heartscape of Art and Verse. The author, who is a staple at the art scene of Chicago, highlights art and poetry in her work. The in-pages celebrate the beauty of relationships and our connection to the divine. The collection seeks to cast a light on the deeper meaning of human existence.

Even as a little girl, Shaw has always had an affinity for art and poetry, which only grew over time. Her style renders her subjects with layers of ink, watercolor, and pencil on rag paper. As for her poetry, it is an amalgam of various religious and spiritual texts. Shaw is inspired by the wisdom of several Buddhist monks, Hindu scriptures and of Sanskrit chants and prayers.
