Shay Cajolet is a British-born painter and printmaker who trained at Massachusetts College of Art, the Tamarind Institute of Lithography, Jacob Kramer College of Art in England, and Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. Shay’s mixed media paintings and printed impressions are expressive, colorful, and gestural. From her home studio in Ipswich, water-based media are used to compose playful, evocative images. Marks, elements, colors, and textures are layered to create descriptive compositions filled with light and movement. In her smaller works Shay delicately layers drawn and painted imagery with monoprints, lithographs, and carved impressions. Shay teaches visual arts at Shore Country Day School
