What is the RAW Organization about?  I’m glad you asked……”RAW: natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists.  We welcome all genres of art including independent film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, hairstylists, makeup artists and more.  We encourage the creative success of the many visionaries and storytellers of our generation.”

On August 29, 2013 I was showcased along with 40 other artist.  What to expect at a RAW showcase? “RAW events come together to form an amazing one-night circus of creativity.  You’ll experience an independent film (usually a short, webisode or music video), a fashion show from an up-and-coming local designer, a musical performance, an art gallery featuring several independent visual artists and photographers, and performance art (comedy/dance/fire dancers, you name it…). You’ll get a little taste of everything”. A full buffet of RAW talent!

As a RAW Artist, I felt amazing being in a room with my RAW family.  We are all inspired by each other and we all eat, sleep and breathe our art.  There is so much passion in the air that when we walk past each other all we can do is smile.  It’s a smile that doesn’t only mean a friendly gesture but a true and authentic respect for your craft ( almost like a salute).  As a Make-up Artist, I had the opportunity to display my art by doing the make-up for one of the featured Fashion Designers and I also had two promotional models, all GLAMMED UP! A huge thanks to Lisa As-sing of LAVA for doing the hair for my models, always HOT! Also a special thanks to my promotional models, Ashley Cullen and Kelly Leveille, you guys are beautiful and make the perfect canvas. Below are some of my snap shots from my RAW showcase, please enjoy and become a RAW ARTIST! http://www.rawartists.org , www.shawnaelizabeth.com
