Shore earned her BFA from SAIC in 1981, studying under Ray Yoshida, Christina Ramberg, Philip Hanson, and Barbara Rossi, and she is now a professor at the school. To create her allusive abstract compositions the artist composes shapes out of a single repeated pattern then animates them with a drop shadow, as seen here.
