Shabott returned to painting and drawing through the teachings of Robert Henry and a Romano Rizk Scholarship from the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Figure drawing is the foundation of her practice with Provincetown as her muse. About her first solo show at Four Eleven Gallery in 2018, Emily Mergel writes in Artscope Magazine “Shabott continually draws inspiration from abstract expressionist Hans Hofmann and breaks forms into their most evocative essentials…She seizes the opportunity to burst the gallery walls, speaking with intentional gesture in visual vocabulary all her own.”

A teaching artist at PAAM, Castle Hill and the Cape Cod Museum of Art, Shabott works with adults who want to immerse themselves in drawing and painting after other careers and journeys.
