Sheppard Morose



Sheppard Morose (American/St. Louis b. 1962)

As a former graphic designer for Fleishmand Hillard in St. Louis and VSA Partners in Chicago, she uses her design strengths to create bold, colorful paintings and original pigment prints. Her paintings at Kodner Gallery range from graphic abstracts to stylized florals. ​Her niche has been to work with designers, architects and homeowners to create interiors that uplift and engage those who pass through. Some colorful, modern installations stretch three stories high in downtown loft spaces, while other nature-inspired pieces promote wellness in health facilities. 

Modern artists and designers Mies Van der Rohe, Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Diebenkorn, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder are her greatest influences.
