Observer. Creator. Catalyst.

Shabott is part of a core group of artists whose presence and practices - whether visual, literary or performance -ensures the continuance of Provincetown as a vital arts colony. In 2015, she returned to painting and drawing through the teachings of Robert Henry and a scholarship from PAAM to draw. 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 instructs adults who want to begin or begin again.
