Rather than conventional paintbrushes, Amy Shackleton uses squeeze bottles and gravity as her primary tools for creation. Liquid paint is dripped, poured and layered as the canvas is rotated to navigate. The architectural aspects are highly controlled while the natural elements embody the spontaneous liquid impulse. Shackleton’s work wrestles with these opposing forces, just as her own optimism wrestles with our shared space in the urban and natural worlds.
Through an optimistic lens, she creates unique urban landscape paintings that combine multiple locations into a single composition. 'Urban Treehouse' combines the deeply rooted natural landscapes of Kleinburg's cottage country in southern Ontario with the glass, cement and steel skyscrapers of New York City.

Wow! What a beautiful monster….
We have not had so much challenging fun in a long time. Even up to the last pieces it was still a puzzle where each piece went, what a monster indeed. Hope there are more like this…:-) Stephen
Christmas heirloom gift
Loved doing this puzzle with the family. We later flipped the puzzle over to find the whimsy pieces from the checklist. My kids found additional ones not listed: person reading a book in a hammock, a castle, a ******, L-square ruler, 2x whimsy people.
Love this one!
Beautiful and modern artwork with bright colours. Relatively challenging image, also due to size and creatively tricky cut. Love StumpCraft puzzles, superb quality.
