She found herself back in Savannah shortly after college and began developing as a painter. In 1996 she moved to Ft. Collins Colorado and received a Masters of Fine Art at Colorado State University.

Shaun Horne (b. 1968) is a professional landscape painter based in Crested Butte, Colorado.  He makes landscape paintings using a large-scale plein air method. He starts and finishes his canvases on-site, returning day after day to the same place and light, in the manner of Claude Monet. On the other hand, Shaun paints with an American hard-edge more akin to Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, or Georgia O'Keefe. Shaun has recently opened a new gallery, the Shaun Horne Gallery in Crested Butte, CO at 418 Elk Avenue.  Check out pictures of the awesome new space at shaunhornegallery.com
