Shasha studied art at Rhode Island School of Design where he received his B.F.A in 1983. His artwork has been seen in museums, galleries and dozens of publications for three decades. His paintings have appeared in more than 50 notable exhibitions from Hollywood, California to the Lyman Allyn Art Museum in Connecticut and the Society of Illustrators in New York City.
Shasha's work has received acclaim; "Captivating" (Smithsonian),
"Alluring and dreamy" (The New York Times),
"Beautiful and strongly atmospheric" (Publisher's Weekly),
"Dazzling, beautiful" (Marblehead Reporter).
But some of his early published pastel work has been criticized as "airy" and "static" (Lisa Dennis - Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh).
His art is found in public and private collections worldwide and his children's books have been read by millions.
