Shawn grew up on an angus ranch in southern Idaho before going to college to play baseball. After graduating Shawn pursued a career as a Financial Consultant with Morgan Stanley Dean Witter and Smith Barney. After seven years of managing investments and trading stocks, Foote wanted to create art as much as he could. Moving into Seattle's historic 619 Western Building, Foote developed his art practice while serving part-time as CFO with a local technology consulting firm. Now Foote is a visual arts teacher at an alternative high school.
