PM Shore has an education in art and has worked in Applied Arts as a Graphic Designer, Art Director and Creative Director for ad agencies and design firms throughout the area. She also was co-owner of a full-color printing firm for 15 years and ran her own design firm.
She began painting as a child growing up in the Columbia River Gorge and this has always been her artistic preference.
Retiring from design due to vision problems, after a period of treatment, she returned to paint full-time saying, "If I have to struggle, I want to do something I love!!"
She now exhibits with galleries, shows and festivals, and is in demand for commissioned pieces as well as maintaining a busy studio schedule. She also has taught with the Washington & Portland Fine Art Associations.
She is involved in raising the Everett Station Loft & Galleries (ESL) profile in the arts community. She works with the Neighborhood Association and sub committees cleaning up the neighborhood. She is an active advocate for the neighborhood working with police. She works with at-risk teens in the area.
Her and photographer, William Good, another ESL resident, are working on a long range project filming PM painting the homeless and mentally ill.
